does this sort an array of integers?

im using selectionSort to sort an array of integers that i will create later. For example int a[MAX]; <---this will be my array. I know this sorts an array of objects, but what about integers?
public static void selectionSort(Comparable list)
for(int index=0; index<list.length-1; index++)
for(int scan=index+1; scan<list.length; scan++)
if(list[scan].compareTo(list[min] < 0)
temp = list[min];

No, only objects. But why not use java.util.Arrays.sort()?

Have tested it with an int? If so, what types of errors are you getting?
Ernest Friedman-Hill: ...But why not use java.util.Arrays.sort()?
I'm guessing this is an assignment of some sort (bad pun intended) about implementing sorting algorithms.
Some problems are so complex that you have to be highly intelligent and well informed just to be undecided about them. - Laurence J. Peter
