Storing Objects in a Vector

Posted by Christian on October 24, 2001 at 12:50 AM

Hi there,

I tried to use a Vector to store some simple Objects. The problem is, that I don't get the correct global variables of the Objects back. (see source code)
Instead of returning A and B, I just get B two times. I don't know the reason. I always get the name of the last added Object x the Vector size.
I can't figure out the problem - but maybe you can.

Thanks for all answers,


public class VectorItem {

private static String Name;

public VectorItem(String ItemName) {

this.Name = ItemName;

public String getName() {

return this.Name;


import java.util.Vector;

public class Test {

private static Vector ObjectVector;

public static void show() {

for (int i = 0; i < ObjectVector.size(); i++) {

System.out.println( ((VectorItem) ObjectVector.elementAt(i)).getName());

public static void main(String [] argv) {

VectorItem v1 = new VectorItem("A");
VectorItem v2 = new VectorItem("B");

ObjectVector = new Vector();
