You need to break the problem down into steps
>Given a long array of integers that contains positive/negative numbers or zeros,
>write a function/method in Java that would move all  negative numbers to the
>front of the array and all positive numbers to the end of the array, and return
>the index of the first positive integer

You will need to iterate through the array and for each item in the array
  1. Move all negative numbers to the front of the array
  2. Move all positive numbers to the end of the array
        2.5  If 1st positive Integer, save index
At the end
3. Return index of 1st positive integer

Keep adding detail until you have a program

Sort your array and search the first number which is greater than zero and return its index.
