    If I understand your question correctly, you want to write a program to find the maximum number in an array? Left alone, I have two approaches:
    1. Use the sort method of the Arrays class from the java.util package and then pick up the last element from the array; or

    2. Use the max method of the Collections class.

    Your choice!

    Sorting the array will allow you to get as many "biggest" numbers as you want.In case you want to get top 50 numbers from an array.
