Finding minimum and maximum values in an array

In this example we are finding out the maximum and minimum values from an int array.

class MinMaxExample { 
  public static void main(String args[]){
    int array[] = new int[]{10, 11, 88, 2, 12, 120};
    // Calling getMax() method for getting max value
    int max = getMax(array);
    System.out.println("Maximum Value is: "+max);
    // Calling getMin() method for getting min value
    int min = getMin(array);
    System.out.println("Minimum Value is: "+min);
  // Method for getting the maximum value
  public static int getMax(int[] inputArray){ 
    int maxValue = inputArray[0]; 
    for(int i=1;i < inputArray.length;i++){ 
      if(inputArray[i] > maxValue){ 
         maxValue = inputArray[i]; 
    return maxValue; 
  // Method for getting the minimum value
  public static int getMin(int[] inputArray){ 
    int minValue = inputArray[0]; 
    for(int i=1;i<inputArray.length;i++){ 
      if(inputArray[i] < minValue){ 
        minValue = inputArray[i]; 
    return minValue; 


Maximum Value is: 120
Minimum Value is: 2
