A one-D array will have only one dimension :) are you talking about multiple dimensions?
Mayank SAssociate Director - Product EngineeringCommented:
If its a 2-D array, then its like an array of arrays. Each inner array can have multiple lengths (multiple columns, if that's what you call it), so you will need to invoke length on each one of them individually.

String[][] a ;
// populate values into it

for ( int i = 0 ; i < a.length ; i ++ )
  System.out.println ( a[i].length ) ; // end for
