I was wondering if anyone knew some good java documentation that could tell me about the different types of sorts (bubble, insertion etc.) and loops...I know there is some on Java.sun.com but im VERY new to this so im not to sure where to go on the sun website...can anyone offer some help.
I'm unsure whether your're asking about sort algorithms in general (in which case it's not a Java question), or whether you're asking how to sort things in Java. If the latter, check out Collections.sort().
Have you tried using Google? Sorting is a well-understood topic in Computer Science and there are many sites on the Web that describe how different sorting algorithms work. In fact, many of these sites have animations that illustrates the algorithm in action. For example, take a look at this applet. It doesn't contain any textual descriptions of the algorithms, but it illustrates very clearly what happens during the various sort algorithms that it has implemented.
