Hi
Just as the title says..im trying to sort an array of strings. An example code follows :

String[] x = {"smithaj", "VMerve","albertd"};
Arrays.sort(x);

The output I get from this would be:
VMerve
albertd
smithaj

It sorts the strings starting with capital letters first.. The result I want is:
albertd
smithaj
VMerve

I donot want to change the way the data is ie. change all strings to lowercase/uppercase.
Is there a way it will sort the data with ignoring the case?

Thank you in adavance.
