Sorting in Java

Posted by Salil V Gangal on September 02, 2000 at 11:10 PM


Is there any 'ready-made' data structure / sort routine which operates on record-like structures and sorts them by the given sort key ?

As an example if I have a simple table in the memory consisting of a row such as follows

Customer_Name char
January_Balance number
Februeary_Balance number
City char
State char

Then is there any 'ready-made' sorting that will sort this table in memory by any field(s) that I want ? Say January_Balance ? Or say a sort-within-a-sort by State and City ?
