    Default Creating an array with many of the same element?

    So I know this is probably a super basic question, but I'm new to Java so please be nice to me

    I'm trying to create a method that creates and returns a String array, with many elements and the same String stored in all of the elements of my array. (Like say, if I wanted to return an array of 600 elements that stored of the String "hello world" in each one). I'd post the code that I have so far, but I really don't have anything substantial; all I've been able to do is create the method.

    I'm sorry to bother everyone with such a simple question, but I've searched online and looked through my textbook, and haven't been able to find anything. Thanks!

    There are no restrictions on how many elements in an array have the same value.
    array[4] = aStr;
    array[55] = aStr;
    array[234] = aStr;
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
