both do. Vector is synchronized while ArrayList is not.
So use ArrayList where only single thread access, asi its faster

I hope you are refering to ArrayList not array.
Both allow sorting. Sort method is provided in the utility Collections class.
As for arrays, Arrays class has the sort method.

i thinks if you have an array you you can use the static method sort of class a as follows
Array.sort(yourarray);

just a suggestion i havent tested it. so it might not work
