and when i add a new int data type my program has an error and yet when i add a new String data type it has no error

// demonstrates sorting objects (uses insertion sort)
// to run this program: C>java libmainsys

I've not compiled or tested it but you need to define two insertion sorts.

One for sorting strings the other for integers.\

There is plenty of examples for sorting on internet. Did you looked at them? Please do so, just quick google search brought this
Why I'm telling this to you? Because right now we can only recomend that you follow theory in order to create some code. Then, if you have any problem with this fresh developed code we will advice.

i have try to look for sorting object using Bubble sort on the internet but couldn't , i only found insertion object

You didn't look too hard then, I searched "bubble sort" on google and oddly enough, the whole page has results for bubble sort, not insertion. First result is even a wikipedia page and display code.
But isn't bubble sort like the first thing they teach in school?
