hi guys

I have this code in my java


while(rs.next()){      
PeriodVO vo = new PeriodVO();
vo.setMonth(rs.month);
vo.setStatus(rs.status);
vo.setYear(rs.year);

String month= vo.getMonth());  //is a number
String year= vo.getYear());
String periods = MonthUtils.getMonth(month)+"-"+year+" ("+vo.getStatus()+")";
vo.setPeriod(periods);
arraylist.add(vo);
}
so basically finally in my  arrayList i will see data like this in this order

FEB-2011-(CLOSE)
JAN-2010-(OPEN)
JAN-2009-(DISABLE)

My requirment is i want the 'OPEN' status row as my first item.
any idea ?

thanks
