    Default sortstringarray

    Please help me. i am working on this project and i believe that i am going the wrong way on it. it says to create a String array call ss. It will contain the following Strings in the order shown.
    {“Bill”, “Mary”, “Lee”, “Agnes”, “Alfred”, “Thomas”, “Alvin”, “Bernard”, “Ezra”,“Herman”} Using this method
    public static void sort(int a[]) //Signature
    Example:
    int b[] = {14, 2, 109, . . . 23, 5, 199};
    Arrays.sort(b);
    to sort this array and then print the contents of the
    sorted array (using a loop) from index 0 to the last. Call both your project and class,
    SortStringArray. Confine all of your code to the main method.
    The printout should look like the following:
    Agnes
    Alfred
    Alvin
    Bernard
    Bill
    Ezra
    Herman
    Lee
    Mary
    Thomas
    this is what i have so far :
    import java.io.*;
    import java.util.*;
    public class sortstringarray
    {
      public static void main(String args[])
      {
        for(int a = 0; a <= 9; a++)
        Int 0 = "Bill";
        Int 1 = "Mary";
        Int 2 = "Lee";
        Int 3 = "Agnes";
        Int 4 = "Alfred";
        Int 5 = "Thomas";
        Int 6 = "Alvin";
        Int 7 = "Bernard";
        Int 8 = "Ezra";
        Int 9 = "Herman";
        String ss[] = {a};
        Arrays.sort(ss);
        System.out.print(ss);
      }
    }
    please send me some feedback on this
    Rock On

    please send me some feedback on this
    And the feedback is: this code is completely wrong and meaningless. It has so many syntax errors that it's not even compilable. You have to start with Java in another (hope better) way .....

    Your code looks absolutely wrong. But just so I don't discourage you, i'll let you have this heads up:
    1. You only need to import the java.util package;
    2. You don't need a loop;
    3. Names like Bill, Mary, etc should be declared String;

    Finally, I strongly suggest you study some tutorial in this course as you wouldn't get anyware with this. All the best!
