You can use Arrays.asList(T... a) method in variable expression.

The example:

<variable name="listVar" class="java.util.List">
    <variableExpression><![CDATA[Arrays.asList(new String[] {"1-2pm", "2-3pm", "3-4pm", "4-5pm"})]]></variableExpression>
    <initialValueExpression><![CDATA[Arrays.asList(new String[] {"1-2pm", "2-3pm", "3-4pm", "4-5pm"})]]></initialValueExpression>

Since it's not changing, it probably makes sense to do this in a parameter instead - mdahlman 2012-04-06 04:40
