i have situation where i need to sort hash map values .i am doing it as below
while(resultSet.next()){
                        String event = resultSet.getString("EVENTTYPE");
                   int countEvent = resultSet.getInt("COUNTS");
                        map1.put(event,countEvent );
                  

                  SortedSet<String> sortedset= new TreeSet<String>(map1.keySet());
                  System.out.println("sorted set..."+sortedset);
                  Iterator<String> it = sortedset.iterator();
                   while (it.hasNext()) {
                      mapsort =(String)it.next();
                      num=(map1.get(mapsort));
                   map4.put(mapsort, num);
                  
//                   System.out.println ("map sort..."+map4);
                   }
                  map3.putAll(map4);
                   System.out.println("sorted map key..."+mapsort);
                   System.out.println("sorted map value..."+num);
                    System.out.println ("map sort..."+map4);
                  }
Probelm is i am getting sorted set and it's particular value while iterating but when i put that in another hah map sorting order was gone.Can anyone suggest me where i am going wrong?

HashMap does not support ordere

I think you can use LinkedHashMap instaed

read this - so it will retian the order in which you inserted pairs:
http://download.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/api/java/util/LinkedHashMap.html
Hash table and linked list implementation of the Map interface, with predictable iteration order. This implementation differs from HashMap in that it maintains a doubly-linked list running through all of its entries. This linked list defines the iteration ordering, which is normally the order in which keys were inserted into the map (insertion-order). Note that insertion order is not affected if a key is re-inserted into the map. (A key k is reinserted into a map m if m.put(k, v) is invoked when m.containsKey(k) would return true immediately prior to the invocation.)

(in the first place)
String event = resultSet.getString("EVENTTYPE");
                   int countEvent = resultSet.getInt("COUNTS");
                   treeMap.put(event, countEvent);

Why would you do that? At the moment, you use a SortedSet to store the key and then
put it into a (now LinkedHash)Map. That's redundant. All you need do is put it straight into a TreeMap

LinkedHashMap will keep yoir order
TreeMap will impose natural ordering

(which is already the natural sort order of the key). Using SortedSet first is redundant
