    This capability is built into the java.util library! Just import the library using:
    import java.util.*;
    Now you can create an instance of the Random class wherever you need it. Once you have your instance you can use one of several methods to generate a random number:
    Random generator = new Random();
    int randomIndex = generator.nextInt( nMaxReturnVal );
    For more information just google "java random number generator" and you'll get many articles on the subject.
