# sorting array descending order

Design a Java program to

• You are close to the answer. Next time just use a simple sorting algorithm. The simple algorithm sorting method I defined here is called Bubble sort.

[code]public static void sortDescending(int[] x) {
int newLowest = 0; // index of first comparison
int newHighest = x.length-1; // index of last comparison

while (newLowest < newHighest) {
int highest = newHighest;
int lowest = newLowest;

newLowest = x.length; // start higher than any legal index
for (int i = lowest; i < highest; i++) {
if (x[i] < x[i+1]) {
// exchange elements
int temp = x[i];
x[i] = x[i+1];
x[i+1] = temp;

if (i newHighest) {
newHighest = i + 1;
}
}
}
}
}[/code]

Below is the complete listing of the source code

[code]import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class ArraySort {

public static void main(String [] args) {
Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
final int SIZE = 6;

int [] arrayNumber = new int[SIZE];

for (int i = 0; i < SIZE; i++) {
arrayNumber[i] = input.nextInt();
}

// Displaying them in the order in which they were input

for (int i = 0; i < SIZE; i++) {
System.out.print(arrayNumber[i] + " ");
}
System.out.println();

// Displaying them in reverse order to the order in which they were input
for (int i = SIZE - 1; i >= 0; i--) {
System.out.print(arrayNumber[i] + " ");
}
System.out.println();

// Sort and display the integers into ascending order
Arrays.sort(arrayNumber);

for (int i = 0; i < SIZE; i++) {
System.out.print(arrayNumber[i] + " ");
}
System.out.println();

// Displaying them in reverse order to the order in which they were input
sortDescending(arrayNumber);
for (int i = 0; i < SIZE; i++) {
System.out.print(arrayNumber[i] + " ");
}
System.out.println();
}
public static void sortDescending(int[] x) {
int newLowest = 0; // index of first comparison
int newHighest = x.length-1; // index of last comparison

while (newLowest < newHighest) {
int highest = newHighest;
int lowest = newLowest;

newLowest = x.length; // start higher than any legal index
for (int i = lowest; i < highest; i++) {
if (x[i] < x[i+1]) {
// exchange elements
int temp = x[i];
x[i] = x[i+1];
x[i+1] = temp;

if (i newHighest) {
newHighest = i + 1;
}
}
}
}
}

}
