Hi, 
I am trying to run this code and ArrayList<String> data = handler.getnames(); is showing an error variable data is alredy defined in method main(String[]). I am guessing it wants me to combine it with ArrayList<String> data = handler.getsetnums();. But how to i do it? or is there another way?   
Ones the code works, and should be able to run it and get an output, now when i only have one Array working the code does what it needs to do.

expected outcome

    <set-num>00-1</set-num>
    <name>WEETABIX CASTLE</name>

 

Thank you.

You have the right idea. The error is caused because you have two variable declarations withe same name:

<pre>ArrayList data = handler.getnames()
and

ArrayList data = handler.getsetnums();
Java doesn't allow this. However, you don't necessarily want to "combine them together" because these are two separate lists that seem to represent two different things.

I suggest changing the names of both variables to something more meaningful than data. For example:

ArrayList names = handler.getnames()
and

ArrayList setnums = handler.getsetnums();
Presumably, names and setnums represent something meaningful for what you are doing here.
