Declaring an array is done like so:
String[] myArray;

This declares an array of Strings that is called 'myArray.' We know it is an array because the declaration has square brackets in it. To instantiate the array, we do this:
myArray = new String[5];

This creates an instance of our array that will hold 5 items. If we do not know how many items will go in our array, we instantiate it using a default constructor, like this:
myArray = new String[];
The default size of an array is (iirc) 1000 elements, or something like that.

This is a tutorial from Sun Java that may be useful.
