A manual method/function can easily return an array. Make sure the return type of that function is declared as an array of the correct data type. like this

import java.util.Arrays;  
public class ReturnArrayExample1{
  public static void main(String args[]{
  int[] a=numbers();           //obtain the array  
  for (int i = 0; i < a.length; i++) //for loop to print the array  
  System.out.print( a[i]+ " ");

  public static int[] numbers(){
  int[] myArray={1,2,3,4,5};  //initializing array  
  return myArray;


This program will print the values of myArray which is 1,2,3,4,5.
