    Default Java Methods - Beginner

    Hi I am new to Java and would like to ask how to do this question specifically:

    Code a Java method that accepts a String array and a String. The method should return true if the string can be found as an element of the array and false otherwise. Test your method by calling it from the main method which supplies its two parameters (no user input required). Use an array initialiser list to initialise the array you pass. Test thoroughly.
