How to create multiple copies of a given object?

The java.util.Collections class consists exclusively of static methods that operate on or return collections. It contains polymorphic algorithms that operate on collections, “wrappers”, which return a new collection backed by a specified collection, and a few other odds and ends.

Collections.nCopies() method will returns an immutable list consisting of n copies of the specified object. The newly allocated data object is tiny (it contains a single reference to the data object). This method is useful in combination with the List.addAll method to grow lists. The returned list is serializable.
Syntax: public static List nCopies(int n,T o)


package com.codesjava;
import java.util.Collections;
import java.util.List;
public class Test { 
    public static void main(String a[]){         
        String temp = "vikas";
        List<String> tempCopies = Collections.nCopies(5, temp);
        Employee employee = new Employee("Vikas", 100000);
        List<Employee> employeeCopies = Collections.nCopies(5, employee);
        for(Employee emp:employeeCopies){
class Employee{     
    private String name;
    private Integer salary;     
    public Employee(String name, Integer sal){        = name;
        this.salary = sal;
    public String getName() {
        return name;
    public void setName(String name) { = name;
    public Integer getSalary() {
        return salary;
    public void setSalary(Integer salary) {
        this.salary = salary;
    public String toString(){
        return name+"   "+salary;


[vikas, vikas, vikas, vikas, vikas]
Vikas   100000
Vikas   100000
Vikas   100000
Vikas   100000
Vikas   100000
