Example

The following example shows the usage of java.util.Arrays.sort() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.util.Arrays;

public class ArrayDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // initializing unsorted char array
      char cArr[] = {'r','q','s','p'};

      // let us print all the values available in list
      for (char value : cArr) {
         System.out.println("Value = " + value);
      }

      // sorting array
      Arrays.sort(cArr);

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

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

Value = r
Value = q
Value = s
Value = p
The sorted char array is:
Value = p
Value = q
Value = r
Value = s
