Default Java help

I just beginning programming/java so bear with me.

Im trying to create a list.

i imported List with:

import java.util.List;

In a method i try to create my list with:

List<Character> chars = new List<Character>();

(This is Java 1.5, so i have to include the type of List when creating it)

The error message i get is:

java.util.List is abstract; cannot be instantiated


Anyone have any ideas??
thanks

Default Re: Java help

List is an interface

you want to use a class that implements the interface like
ArrayList, LinkedList, or Vector.
