public class ExArrayCommon
	public static void main(String[] args) 
		// enter string value.
		String[] array1 = {"C", "C++", "C#", "JAVA", "SQL", "ORACLE"};

		String[] array2 = {"MySQL", "SQL", "Android", "ORACLE", "PostgreSQL", "DB2", "JAVA"};

		// print both the string.
		System.out.println("Array1 : "+Arrays.toString(array1));
		System.out.println("Array2 : "+Arrays.toString(array2));

		HashSet<String> set = new HashSet<String>();

		for (int i = 0; i < array1.length; i++)
			for (int j = 0; j < array2.length; j++)
		// return common elements.
		System.out.println("Common element : "+(set));
