This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi, I am seeking for help on a Comparable question, if anybody can provide any insight I'd greatly appreciate it.
I have an int array and a method that takes in (Comparable array), what could I do to make the Comparable accepts the int array? Do I have to change the int array to an array of Integer Objects? Or is there another way I can tackle this?
On the face of it, yes, making an array of Integer could be one easy solution. Alternatively, you could make a copy of that method that takes an array of Comparable, and modify it to work with ints. If c is an array of Comparable and i is an array of ints, then c[n].compareTo(c[m]) translates directly into i[n] - i[m].
You're welcome to post code. We appreciate it if you keep the code as short as possible -- i.e., don't post code for a GUI with 100 buttons if you're asking about JDBC -- and if you use the UBB [C0DE][/C0DE] tags to surround the code to preserve the formatting.
