    Question Return Min

    I got part of this code written, but I am not sure how to make it so that it will return the smaller of the two passwords entered.

    package password;
    /*50. Write a program that reads two words representing passwords from
    //the Java console and outputs the number of characters in the smaller
    //of the two. For example, if the two words are open and sesame, then
    //the output should be 4, the length of the shorter word, open.
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class PassWord
    public static void main( String [] args )
    Scanner scan = new Scanner (System.in );
    System.out.print("Enter your first Password > " );
    String passOne = scan.next( );
    System.out.print("Enter your 2nd Password > " );
    String passTwo = scan.next ( );
    System.out.print("Your password is " + passOne + " Your other password is " + passTwo);

    Check the String API for methods - well, one method - that may be helpful.
