Let there is pretty straightforward class

public class Employees {
    String lastName;

    Employees(String str) {
        this.lastName = str;

    }

    public String getLastName() {
        return lastName;
    }
}

Open in new window


public class EmployeesTest {

    public static void main(String[] args) { 
        new Employees("Smith");
        new Employees("Page");
        new Employees("Musk");
        new Employees("Dorsy");
        new Employees("Gates");
       
    }
}

Open in new window

I need to create some transform method that convert my employees collection into a String collection with last names of the employees. It is be best if the argument(s) of the method will be at topest level of collection hierarchy as much as possible ( Collection at best if it is possible  ) .
CollectionUtils.transform(stringList, employeesList);

Pretty easy:
Iterate over your List of Employees objects (remark: the name of your class should better be Employee instead of Employees) for each item, insert the last name in your List of Strings.

You know how to add an item to a List, right?

   public static Collection<String> transform(Collection<String> strCollection, Collection myCollection) {
        Iterator it = myCollection.iterator();
        while (it.hasNext()) {
            strCollection.add(it.next().toString());
        }
        return strCollection;
    }

why are you passing in the string collection as the first argument:  transform(Collection<String> strCollection, Collection myCollection) {


You don't need to.
