HI,
I have an ArrayList :

private ArrayList<CountryInfo> _supportedCountryInfoList;

Open in new window


I am sorting it the following way :'

Collections.sort(_supportedCountryInfoList, new Comparator<CountryInfo>() {
@Override
 public int compare(CountryInfo lhs, CountryInfo rhs) {
 return lhs.getCountryName().compareTo(rhs.getCountryName());
 }
 });

Open in new window


I want to know what are the other methods to sort an arrayList. And which is better than other.
Is Collections.sort a good approach to sort ?

Thanks

I can't remember ever sorting an ArrayList using a different method than Collections.sort(). It definitely gets the job done well.

While I am not very familiar with it, you might look into using LambdaJ.

That method is fine. Of course you might want to look at having a default natural ordering, implementing Comparable<CountryInfo>

btw - try to avoid underscores in normal variable names in Java
