Hi,

How can I sort items, items='${company.sites}' in alphabetical order and print them?
Do I need to sort it in Java class first?


<c:forEach items='${company.sites}' var="site">
  <tr><td><ul><li class="${site.name}">
               <a href="${site.url}" target="_blank" class="${site.tag}">${site.name}</a>
            </li>
         </ul></td>                          
    <td style="width:25%">${site.lastUpdate } </td></tr>
</c:forEach>

i guess you need to sort the collection in servlet, before you get to jsp

You could order the sites when you put them into your collection,
or you could create a tag file to do the sorting,
or you could create a custom EL function to do the sorting. Please ask us here, if you want example code.

I have a basic java question, ${company.sites}
I can see the Site class but I can't find the Sites class.
I can't find where Sites collection is.
How does this servlet  syntax work?
I have this Java project and trying to understand what it is doing and fix bugs if I can..

you can simply include this scriptlet in your code

<%
List list = (List)session.getAttribute("company.sites");
Comparator comp = .... //comparator class defined to sort the sites
Collections.sort(list, comp);
%>

OK.
I came to understand that Com
Company class {
Company company;
...


public List<String> getOwnerNames() {
        List<String> owners = LuceneConfig.getOwnernames();
        return Collections.sort( owners );
       
    }

public List<Site> getSites() {
       List<Site> xsites = LuceneConfig.getSites();
       return  Collections.sort(xsites);  <=== I need help this part...
      }

There is no Collections.sort() so are you saying I need to use Comparable <Site> =...?
