(Assuming the latter)
public List<Integer> pointsToIntegerList(List<List<Point>> points) {
        List<Integer> ints = new ArrayList<Integer>();

        for (List<Point> lp : points) {
            for (Point p : lp) {
                ints.add(p.x);
                ints.add(p.y);
            }
        }

        return ints;
    }

The Point class has two fields called "x" and "y", that represents your point's coordinates. My suggestion is to iterate through all the points and, as the process goes by, create a new array with the "x" and "y" values. So, your final array will be something like { x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3 ... }. A sample code to do it:

List<Point> points = new ArrayList<Point>();
List<Integer> points2 = new ArrayList<Integer>();

for (int i = 0; i < points.size(); i++)
{
    points2.add(points[i].x);
    points2.add(points[i].y);
}
