bubble sort algorithm

I'm reading a book and it has an exercise at the end of a chapter that says to use the bubble sort algorithm. I've checked out sun's website and can't find any mention of it, and the book doesn't mention anymore about it. Does anyone know if this is a built in method in java? And if so, what class is it in? Thanks.

This is a standard algorithm for programming regardless of the language, C, C++, Pascal, Java, etc. As far as I know, there is no method in the java API called bubble sort. Check your local library for a book on algorithms to get the general concept. A good one is Data Structures & Algorighms in Java by Mitchell Waite.
