String name;
String phoneNum;

public String getName() {return name;}

public String getPhoneNum() {return phoneNum;}

public void setName(String n ) { name = n;}

public void setPhoneNum(String pn) {phoneNum = pn;}

phoneDetails() {} // default constructor

phoneDetails(String n, String pn)
{
name = n;
phoneNum = pn;

}

class Search
{
// define method as static method; we can access it without
// creating an object of this class

// set to -1 for failed search

public static int linearSearch(phoneDetails [] arr, String name)
{
int location = -1;
for(int i = 0; i < arr.length;i++)
{
if (arr[i].name.equals(name)) // use equals() method to compare
// two string objects
// if true, store location
location = i;
break;
}
return location;
}
}

The "break" statement near the end of the program is always executed. You need to add a set of braces around the statements that are to be controlled by the "if".

When posting code, please be sure to surround the code with the [code] and [/code] UBB Tags. This will help to preserve the formatting of the code, thus making it easier to read and understand.
