hi all
the following code reverses elements in an array. Is there a more efficient way of writing it.

hi amit,
it seems the method u use is fine in int[] case.
here is the code i tired,

and a script to generate multiple results to get average,

the average was,
Reverse-1: 275.65
Reverse-2: 747.40
Reverse-3: 474.40
Reverse-4: 808.24
Reverse-5: 802.33

may be if we post this to Performance forum it would get more responses...

the average is in milliseconds to perform reverse operation...
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
