    Default where I'm wrong?

    i'm trying to develop a code to add two matrixes and then store result in another matrix but i use to get arrayoutofbounds expection every time i try to run it. please let me know where I'm going wrong?
    have a look at my code
    public class MatrixAdd {
    	static int[][] test1a = {{1,2,3,4},{5,6,7,8},{9,10,11,12}};
    	static int[][] test1b = {{1,2,3,4},{5,6,7,8},{9,10,11,12}};
    	static int[][] test2a = {{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8},{9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16}};
    	static int[][] test2b = {{1,2,3,4,3,2,1,0},{5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12}};
     
    	static int[][] testcaseA = test2a;
    	static int[][] testcaseB = test2b;
     
    	public static void main(String args[]){
    		MatrixAdd inst = new MatrixAdd();
    		int[][] v = inst.add(testcaseA,testcaseB);
    		System.out.println(v);
    	}
     
    	// Write your code in the function below
    	public int[][] add(int[][] m1,int[][] m2){
     
    	int result[][];	
     
    	int lb=m2.length;
    	result = new int[lb][lb];
    	for(int i = 0; i <lb; i++) 
      	for(int j = 0; j <m2[i].length; j++) 
      	result[i][j]=m1[i][j]+m2[i][j]; Eror is here.
    	return  result;
    	}
    }

    Paste the exception/errors message here.
    result = new int[lb][lb];
    lb = 2 and result is now result[2][2]. Why do you expect it, not to throw array out of bound exception?

    Question Re: where I'm wrong?

    thank you Mr. 777
    I understood what you told. Can you please tell me how can i find size of array of array.
    i.e. if array is of size 2x4 then array.length only gives 2 as result, but as we know the very first element is pointing to another array of size 4. then how to find this at runtime as size of array is changed while providing input to this program.

    And what array[index].length will return you? Don't you think, it'll return the array size of what you called array of array?
