Given a value N, the task is to create a List having this value N in a single line in Java using Collection Framework only.


Input: N = 5
Output: [5]

Input: N = GeeksForGeeks
Output: [GeeksForGeeks]


Below is the implementation of the above approach:

// Java program to initialize a list in a single
// line with a specified value
// using Collection Framework only
import java.util.*;
class GFG {
    // Function to create a List
    // with the specified value
    public static <T> List<T> createList(T N)
        // Currently only one value is taken
        int size = 1;
        // Generate a Collection with a single value N
        List<T> list = Collections.nCopies(size, N);
        return list;
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args)
        int N = 1024;
        System.out.println("List with element "
                           + N + ": "
                           + createList(N));
        String str = "GeeksForGeeks";
        System.out.println("List with element "
                           + str + ": "
                           + createList(str));


List with element 1024: [1024]
List with element GeeksForGeeks: [GeeksForGeeks]
