Creating sub-array

Is it possible to create a sub-array from an array directly without having to copy the elements?

Let's say that I have an array of length 1000, and I want to create an array from index 0 to index 400.

Without having to copy each element into a new array, can I do something like int [] newArray = oldArray(startIndex, endIndex)?

No - you need to copy it
//I want to create an array from index 0 to index 400

int[] newArray = new int[401];
System.arrayCopy(oldArray, 0, newArray, 0, newArray.length);
