No you should use an accessor method

private String someString;

public void setSomeString(String someString) {
      this.someString = someString;
}

public String getSomeString() {
      return someString;
}

>>could i do the same with a list?

Yes. If your method is called getList then you'd do

Object o = getList().get(0); // get first element

>> public String getSomeString() {
     return someString;

does it make any difference where i put the method?
does somestring (or my list rather) need to be declared at a certain point in my code?
