    You'll have to provide more details.
    Use the new statement to create an instance of an object
    Use the add() method to add objects to an arraylist.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    What is the problem with creating an object in any class and storing it in an arraylist?
    Can you post the code you are having problems with?
