Java Program to Generate Random Partition out of a Given Set of Numbers or Characters

«
»
This is a java program to generate a random partitioning of a set of characters or numbers in to two sets. Randomly generate an index less than the total number of elements in the set.

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Generate Random Partition out of a Given Set of Numbers or Characters. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.
