Program: Implement bubble sort in java.


Bubble sort, also referred to as sinking sort, is a simple sorting algorithm that works by repeatedly stepping through the list to be sorted, comparing each pair of adjacent items and swapping them if they are in the wrong order. The pass through the list is repeated until no swaps are needed, which indicates that the list is sorted. The algorithm gets its name from the way smaller elements "bubble" to the top of the list. Because it only uses comparisons to operate on elements, it is a comparison sort. Although the algorithm is simple, most of the other sorting algorithms are more efficient for large lists.

Bubble Sort

Bubble sort has worst-case and average complexity both О(n2), where n is the number of items being sorted. There exist many sorting algorithms with substantially better worst-case or average complexity of O(n log n). Even other О(n2) sorting algorithms, such as insertion sort, tend to have better performance than bubble sort. Therefore, bubble sort is not a practical sorting algorithm when n is large.Performance of bubble sort over an already-sorted list (best-case) is O(n).


package com.java2novice.algos;
 
public class MyBubbleSort {
 
    // logic to sort the elements
    public static void bubble_srt(int array[]) {
        int n = array.length;
        int k;
        for (int m = n; m >= 0; m--) {
            for (int i = 0; i < n - 1; i++) {
                k = i + 1;
                if (array[i] > array[k]) {
                    swapNumbers(i, k, array);
                }
            }
            printNumbers(array);
        }
    }
 
    private static void swapNumbers(int i, int j, int[] array) {
 
        int temp;
        temp = array[i];
        array[i] = array[j];
        array[j] = temp;
    }
 
    private static void printNumbers(int[] input) {
         
        for (int i = 0; i < input.length; i++) {
            System.out.print(input[i] + ", ");
        }
        System.out.println("\n");
    }
 
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        int[] input = { 4, 2, 9, 6, 23, 12, 34, 0, 1 };
        bubble_srt(input);
 
    }
}

Output:
2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 23, 0, 1, 34, 

2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 0, 1, 23, 34, 

2, 4, 6, 9, 0, 1, 12, 23, 34, 

2, 4, 6, 0, 1, 9, 12, 23, 34, 

2, 4, 0, 1, 6, 9, 12, 23, 34, 

2, 0, 1, 4, 6, 9, 12, 23, 34, 

0, 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 23, 34, 

0, 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 23, 34, 

0, 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 23, 34, 

0, 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 23, 34,

Exception Vs Error
An error is an irrecoverable condition occurring at runtime like out of memory error. These kind of jvm errors cannot be handled at runtime. Exceptions are because of condition failures, which can be handled easily at runtime.
Famous Quotations
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
