Multidimensional Array

An multidimensional arrays are arrays of arrays. To declare a multidimensional array (2-D) variable, specify each additional index using another set of square brackets. For example,
int twoD[ ][ ]  =  new int[4][5];

This allocates a 4 by 5 array and assigns it to twoD. Internally this matrix is implemented as an array of arrays of int. You require two "for" loops to implement 2-D array.

class TwoDArrayDemo {

 public static void main(String[] args) {
  int twoD[][]= new int[4][5];
  int i, j, k = 0;
  for(i=0; i<4; i++)
   for(j=0; j<5; j++) {
    twoD[i][j] = k;
  for(i=0; i<4; i++) {
   for(j=0; j<5; j++)
    System.out.print(twoD[i][j] + " ");

C:\>java TwoDArrayDemo
0 1 2 3 4 
5 6 7 8 9 
10 11 12 13 14 
15 16 17 18 19
