Frequently Asked Questions about Rhino
You must use Java reflection. For instance, to create an array of java.lang.String of length five, do
var stringArray = java.lang.reflect.Array.newInstance(java.lang.String, 5);

stringArray = "hi". Creating arrays of primitive types is slightly different: you must use the TYPE field. For example, creating an array of seven ints can be done with the code
var intArray = java.lang.reflect.Array.newInstance(java.lang.Integer.TYPE, 7);
