Java / List and its implementations

How do I get the current index of an ArrayList while iterating using for-loop in Java.

using the traditional for-loop, we always have the index of the element.

for (int i = 0; i < myList.size(); i ++) {
    // i hold the index.
    // myList.get(i) retrives the element.

In case of enhanced/condensed for loop, we need to manually add index variable and increment on each iteration as shown below.

int index = 0;
for(String item : itemsList) {
    System.out.println("The current index is: " + index);

The enhanced for-loop does not support index directly as it could iterate through any collection implementing Iterable interface and the collection may not even have any index.
