Hi,
I am getting an exception:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 0
at Sorting.main(Sorting.java:17)
Hope this helps u to find the problem

Look at your program at line 17. What statement is at that line that uses an array?

What is the size of the array that you are trying to look at the first element: [0]?
Does it have any elements at all?

Your array is size 10. You are passing in the 'last' number as 10 while your sort seems to look for size 11 (0~10). Remember that array index is 0-index, not 1-index. You need to pass in a number less than size by 1 or do your loop up to but not include the max size.

try to change this line...

while(first<=last) {

to...

while(first<last) {

and then tell me if it is still broken.

PS: Please put your code in the CODE tag... It's difficult to read with plain text format...

1.The line at 17 is to take arguments from command line.But i commented it later.

2.The size of array is 10.It is taking the elements but the search ain't happening. Something wrong.I changed calling method to bsearch(arr,0,10,11);.But the o/p window shows nutin.

Something wrong

Try debugging the code by adding some println() statements to show the variables values as they are used and changed.
