Hi all,

I am new in java. How can I sort a linked list on the basis of a particular string..?

I have created a class with two elements,

1. Name
2. Address

and I am reading these elements many times

Now I want to sort this on the basis of name..

Please help me .. Thanks in advance....

To me it seems, that you made your own Implementation of a List, if it extends the Java-List, then you can simply use Collections.sort():

void java.util.Collections.sort(list [, comparator] )

With the comparator you can use an (anonymous) Comparator object to compare the two Strings.

there you can simply return stringLeft.compareTo(stringRight) (after checking StringLeft for null, that is)...
