    Default Code for Linear & Binary Search using ArrayLists

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anybody can tell me how to write the code for linear and binary search using ArrayLists? I've been trying to find a code example online but haven't been able to find it.
    Thanks,

    Jen

    Help me understand your question, do you want to search an array using a binary search? I've never known binary searches to use array lists unless it takes the data it is to sort and puts it in an array list and sorts this new array...

    Look at the Collections class. It has a lot of utilities for collection objects.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
