Program: Implement selection sort in java.
The selection sort is a combination of searching and sorting. During each pass, the unsorted element with the smallest
(or largest) value is moved to its proper position in the array. The number of times the sort passes through the array is one less
than the number of items in the array. In the selection sort, the inner loop finds the next smallest (or largest) value and the outer
loop places that value into its proper location.
Selection sort is not difficult to analyze compared to other sorting algorithms since none of the loops depend on the data
in the array. Selecting the lowest element requires scanning all n elements (this takesn − 1 comparisons) and then swapping it into the
first position. Finding the next lowest element requires scanning the remaining n − 1 elements and so on,
for (n − 1) + (n − 2) + ... + 2 + 1 = n(n − 1) / 2 ∈ Θ(n2) comparisons. Each of these scans requires one swap for n − 1 elements.
package com.java2novice.algos;
public class MySelectionSort {
public static int[] doSelectionSort(int[] arr){
for (int i = 0; i < arr.length  1; i++)
{
int index = i;
for (int j = i + 1; j < arr.length; j++)
if (arr[j] < arr[index])
index = j;
int smallerNumber = arr[index];
arr[index] = arr[i];
arr[i] = smallerNumber;
}
return arr;
}
public static void main(String a[]){
int[] arr1 = {10,34,2,56,7,67,88,42};
int[] arr2 = doSelectionSort(arr1);
for(int i:arr2){
System.out.print(i);
System.out.print(", ");
}
}
}


Output: 
2, 7, 10, 34, 42, 56, 67, 88,

Prevent a method from being overridden
By specifying final keyword to the method you can avoid overriding
in a subcalss. Similarlly one can use final at class level to
prevent creating subclasses.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
