Java program to find largest of three numbers

This java program finds largest of three numbers and then prints it. If the entered numbers are unequal then "numbers are not distinct" is printed.

Java programming source code

import java.util.Scanner;
class LargestOfThreeNumbers
   public static void main(String args[])
      int x, y, z;
      System.out.println("Enter three integers ");
      Scanner in = new Scanner(;
      x = in.nextInt();
      y = in.nextInt();
      z = in.nextInt();
      if ( x > y && x > z )
         System.out.println("First number is largest.");
      else if ( y > x && y > z )
         System.out.println("Second number is largest.");
      else if ( z > x && z > y )
         System.out.println("Third number is largest.");
         System.out.println("Entered numbers are not distinct.");

If you want to find out largest of a list of numbers say 10 integers then using above approach is not easy, instead you can use array data structure.
