Hi,
I use the Arrays.sort() method to sort the aray of Strings.
Then, I use a for loop and compare if the first string is equal to the second.
I get the logic, but I'm getting an array index out of bounds exception.
Please help.
Given a string "y z z x y z";
The desired output is ->"z" occurs 3 times

Kudos!
Faisal

That would mean there's something wrong with your code. But nobody here can see the code (except you of course) so I'm not sure what kind of help you expected. Posting the code would make it easier for people to say things about that code.

Show us what you have done and we'll walk you from there....

Your question is not coherent with the approach you have done, if I'm not wrong you're trying to find out how many word x occur most in a String?

It's easy if you know the approach to solve it regardless whether you know Java or not. Search for similar questions already asked, there are
plenty of information that help you solve the problem.

I myself have posted a solution on similar topic, hope it help.

Try doing it using HashMap if the data you have is not too large.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
