    Default Please help with passing an array to a new class

    I have no knowledge of passing to and from a class to another class so if anyone can please help me.

    I have to enter integers in a Java class with a GUI and then sort the integers in a different class in the same package. So far I have been able to sort it in the same class but need to only sort it in a different class and then pass the sorted array back to be displayed in the main class.
    Please help
    This is my working code so far:

    int k;

    int array1[]=new int[3];
    array1[0] = Integer.parseInt(jTextField1.getText());
    array1[1] = Integer.parseInt(jTextField2.getText());
    array1[2] = Integer.parseInt(jTextField3.getText());


    for (k=0;k<4;k++)
    jTextArea1.append(" \n");

    Create a different class, create a method that sorts the array, then pass the array to said class.
