Solution :

Probably you have not selected the correct method for your for loop. 

You need to break the tiles string down into characters by using toCharArray() instead. 

The indexOf() method will return the position of the char is within the string. And we want to iterate over the string so we need an iterable object that is what your error is saying.

Using toCharArray() converts a string to an iterable array that your for loop can pass over one char at a time.

Problem : I am very new to programming. I need to write a program called swapAdj that must accept the array of integers and after that swap those elements at the adjacent indexes. For example consider the elements 0 and 1 are swapped by the program and after ... note if your array has the odd length then the program must keep final element unmodified. Please help me in writing above program.

Problem: I am struggling with a problem for a few hours back. I know how to sort an array by using methods. I was looking for another way (perhaps a loop) to do it more efficiently. Let me put my question this way, how to sort an array in java without using sort method? Could anybody here please help to make this happen? Thanks in advance
