    Default Using ArrayList!

    If i declare and ArrayList as follows "public static ArrayList<Media> mediaList = new ArrayList<Media>();" How can i access it in another class (main class)?

    package Projekt;
    import Projekt.Media.rating;
     
    public class MainTest {
    	static MediaHandler myreg ;
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		myreg.addMovie(title, playTime, year, seen, directory, path, rating.four, quality, subtitles, language, writer);
    	}
    }

    I also have the variables declared but didn't include them for readability.

    Default Re: Using ArrayList!

    This: "It only took 50 hours to solve it"
    MediaHandler myReg = new MediaHandler();

    Is it really a good idea to have a register set as static? I mean i'm going to be adding several medias to the list so making it static wouldn't be wise.

    MediaHandler (the class) is not static, the instance of MediaHandler in the MainTest class is static. So if you intend on creating multiple instances of MainTest, yes it would be a problem, otherwise it doesn't prevent you from making brand new MediaHandler instances in other classes. And I don't know why you would have multiple instances of MainTest, since MainTest is your main.
