I am trying to search an array with a string. I was told their was a class method called find that would return the index of the matching string contained in an array of stringBuffer objects, but I don't know what class it is a method of. I was told that it would accept an array of stringBuffer object references and a string to find. Maybe I am just trying to call the method wrong. This is what I have now. The array already exists.
int itemIndex; itemIndex = find(items, item); break;

Take a look at Arrays.sort(Object) followed by Arrays.binarySearch(Object�a, Object�key) But if you are going to do this often, you should use a Set, not an array.
