Sorting a Vector

I have a Vector of objects that I want to sort.

The only way I figured how to do this is to :
1) Convert the Vector to an Array, using vector.toArray()
2) Sort the array, using Arrays.sort()
3) Fill the Vector back with the sorted array, using a loop !

Quite tricky...

Is there any simpler way??

Thanks,
stsanz.

Keep in mind though that  Collections.sort() sort according to the elements 'natural' order, which might or might not suit your needs! If you need a different, or custom sorting order for your elements you have to implement the Comparator interface and provide an instance with the call to Collections.sort(). Find more infor about Compartor at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/util/Comparator.html .
