Java program to bubble sort

Java program to bubble sort: This code sorts numbers inputted by user using Bubble sort algorithm.

Java programming code

import java.util.Scanner;
 
class BubbleSort {
  public static void main(String []args) {
    int n, c, d, swap;
    Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
 
    System.out.println("Input number of integers to sort");
    n = in.nextInt();
 
    int array[] = new int[n];
 
    System.out.println("Enter " + n + " integers");
 
    for (c = 0; c < n; c++) 
      array[c] = in.nextInt();
 
    for (c = 0; c < ( n - 1 ); c++) {
      for (d = 0; d < n - c - 1; d++) {
        if (array[d] > array[d+1]) /* For descending order use < */
        {
          swap       = array[d];
          array[d]   = array[d+1];
          array[d+1] = swap;
        }
      }
    }
 
    System.out.println("Sorted list of numbers");
 
    for (c = 0; c < n; c++) 
      System.out.println(array[c]);
  }
}

Complexity of bubble sort is O(n2) which makes it a less frequent option for arranging in sorted order when quantity of numbers is high.

You can also use sort method of Arrays class to sort integers in ascending order but remember that sort method uses a variation of Quick sort algorithm.

import java.util.Arrays;
 
class Sort
{
  public static void main(String args[])
  {
    int data[] = { 4, -5, 2, 6, 1 };
 
    Arrays.sort(data);
 
    for (int c: data) 
    {
      System.out.println(c);
    }
  }
}
