myArrayList = new ArrayList(Arrays.asList(new int[] { 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 }));

this approach i good but will be tedious if i size n=1000
int[] ints = new int[1000];
Arrays.fill(ints, 1);

// (the rest as before)

For an ArrayList use:

ArrayList list = new ArrayList(1000);
Collections.fill(list, new Integer(1));
