Resizing an array in Java

(Implementing ArrayList)  ArrayList is implemented in the Java API.  Implement ArrayList and the methods defined in table below (Hint use an array to store the elements in ArrayList.  If the size of ArrayList exceepds the capacity of the current array, create a new array that doubles the size of the current array and copy the contents of the current to the new array)
 

+ArrayList()                                 creates an empty list

+add(o: Object):void                    appends a new element o at the end of this list

+add(index: int, o: Object): void       Adds a new element o at the specified index in this list

+clear():void                                    removes all the elements form this list

+contains(o:Object):boolean            returns true if this list contains element o

+get(index:int):Object                       returns the element from this list at the specified index

+indexOf(o:Object):int                     returns the index of the last matching element in this list

+isEmpty():boolean                          returns true if this list contains no elements

+lastIndexOf(o:Object):int                returns the index of the last matching element in this list

+remove(o:Object):boolean              removes the element o from this list

+size():int                                         returns the number of elements in this list

+remove(index:int):boolean                removes the element at the specified index

+set(index:int, o:Object):Object          sets the elements at the specified index


This is the question that I was given: I'm getting an error  when I debug the program. I have to have a main to run it? Where am I suppose to put the main. Also, if there is anything wrong in my code could you please  help fix the issue. Thanks

>> I have to have a main to run it?

You do. You can put it inside the class for testing only, but it's better to create a separate class

I know I have to implement with a test program, is the code I have so far good to go? I'm working on the test program now. I will post when I am done.

You need to ensure the correct instance variables. This fixes it so it compiles:
import java.util.AbstractList;

import java.util.List;

import java.util.RandomAccess;

 

 

public class ArrayList<E> extends AbstractList<E> implements List<E>, RandomAccess, Cloneable, java.io.Serializable

       // The capacity of the ArrayList is the length of this array buffer.

        

          private transient Object[] elementData;

        private int modCount;

            if(initialCapacity < 0)

            throw new IllegalArgumentException("Illegal Capacity: "+initialCapacity);

             this.elementData = new Object[initialCapacity];

          }

 

  

     // Constructs an empty list with an initial capacity of 100.

you can put the main in any class you want, I'd suggest creating a separate test class and put your test main in there
