Row wise sorting in 2D array

Given a 2D array, sort each row of this array and print the result.

Examples:

Input :
77 11 22 3
11 89 1 12
32 11 56 7
11 22 44 33
Output :
3 11 22 77
1 11 12 89
7 11 32 56
11 22 33 44

Input :
8 6 4 5
3 5 2 1
9 7 4 2
7 8 9 5
Output :
4 5 6 8
1 2 3 5
2 4 7 9
5 7 8 9

Method 1 (Using Bubble Sort)
Start iterating through each row of given 2D array, and sort elements of each row using efficient sorting algorithm.

// Java code to sort 2D matrix row-wise
import java.io.*;
  
public class Sort2DMatrix {
  
    static int sortRowWise(int m[][])
    {
        // loop for rows of matrix
        for (int i = 0; i < m.length; i++) {
  
            // loop for column of matrix
            for (int j = 0; j < m[i].length; j++) {
  
                // loop for comparison and swapping
                for (int k = 0; k < m[i].length - j - 1; k++) {
                    if (m[i][k] > m[i][k + 1]) {
  
                        // swapping of elements
                        int t = m[i][k];
                        m[i][k] = m[i][k + 1];
                        m[i][k + 1] = t;
                    }
                }
            }
        }
  
        // printing the sorted matrix
        for (int i = 0; i < m.length; i++) {
            for (int j = 0; j < m[i].length; j++)
                System.out.print(m[i][j] + " ");
            System.out.println();
        }
  
        return 0;
    }
  
    // driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        int m[][] = { { 9, 8, 7, 1 },
                      { 7, 3, 0, 2 },
                      { 9, 5, 3, 2 },
                      { 6, 3, 1, 2 } };
        sortRowWise(m);
    }
}

Output

1 7 8 9 
0 2 3 7 
2 3 5 9 
1 2 3 6

Method 2 (Using Library Function)
The idea is to use Arrays.sort() for every row of matrix.

        // One by one sort individual rows.
        for (int i = 0; i < m.length; i++)
            Arrays.sort(m[i]);
  
        // printing the sorted matrix
        for (int i = 0; i < m.length; i++) {
            for (int j = 0; j < m[i].length; j++)

                      { 6, 3, 1, 2 } };
  
        sortRowWise(m);
    }
}
