Now, all that being said if you still need to return an array all you need
to do is rs.toArray(new String[0]). This has to do with generics. The
default List.toArray() method will only return an array of objects. The
List.toArray(T[]) is used to return the generic type. Without looking at the
code I couldn't tell you why it's designed like that, but Joshua Bloch had a
lot to do with the Collections library, so I trust there may be a good
reason.
This is actually quite old - I believe it was introduced in Java 1.2 - and the compiler had no way of letting the toArrary() method know what type is on the left side of the assignment. Is this easier these days with generics (still learning).
