Subject RE: no getter method for property phoneList
Date Fri, 20 Dec 2002 21:54:51 GMT
Take a look at this page:

The problem is that you don't have methods to get the
individual items from your lists. You need methods
such as

public String getPhoneItem(int index) {
  return phoneList_.get(index)

public void setPhoneItem(int index, Object obj)

The actual names of the methods don't really matter.

You will have to add code to the getter method so that
you won't get an ArrayIndexOutOfBounds exception when
the getter is called and the list is empty. This topic
has been discussed on the list a few times over the
last week or two.
