import java.util.Arrays;

public class ArrayDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

   // initializing unsorted Object array
   Object ob[] = {27, 11, 44};

   // let us print all the elements available in list
   for (Object number : ob) {
   System.out.println("Number = " + number);
   }

   // sorting array
   Arrays.sort(ob);

   // let us print all the elements available in list
   System.out.println("The sorted Object array is:");
   for (Object number : ob) {
   System.out.println("Number = " + number);
   }

}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Number = 44
The sorted Object array is:
Number = 11
Number = 27
Number = 44
