    Default Error of missing return statement while implementing Array

    hi all.
    this is my first post in here.
    i have problem in return type but can help me ?

    this is my code :
    public ArrayList<Operator> getlist() throws ClassNotFoundException, SQLException{
     
            ArrayList<Operator> operators = null;
            Operator operator= null;
            Command_msg = "SELECT * FROM Operator";
     
                  connection = DBCore.Conn();
                statement = connection.createStatement();
                ResultSet rs = statement.executeQuery(Command_msg);
                operators = new ArrayList<Operator>();
                while(rs.next()){
                    operator = new Operator();
                    operator.setUsername(rs.getString("Username"));
                    operator.setPassword(rs.getString("Password"));
                    operator.setName(rs.getString("Name"));
                    operators.add(operator);
     
            return operators;

    and

     
        //create object From Operator
        private Operator operator;
     
        //create array of Operators
        private Operator[] operators;

    know the error is : missing return Statement

    Default Re: Problem in Array return type

    Count your curly braces {}. The compiler thinks your return statement is inside the loop. Code indentation is for human eyes, the compiler ignores it.
