I am using a JList and I have a list of items that need to be sorted in increasing order by their name.  Any ideas on how to do this?  Currently I am using a DefaultListModel as my model for the JLists.

Try using the following model implementation - you should be able to call Collections.sort on it:

if its static data then just sort the data before creating your DefaultListModel with the sorted data
