Default sorting a text file

Please Login to Remove!

HEllo All,
I am successfully able to read and print the contents of a text file. My text file contains 5 data entries such as 1.Rashmi 120
2.Prema 900 and so on. It must sort only the integers in descending order and swap the respective names attached to them. the first column must remain the same.each time a new entry is made that score must be compared to the existing 5 records and placed accordingly with new name and score. Since this is blackberry programming and blackberry APIs dont support collections.sort,please tell me how do I do this

Default Re: sorting a text file

Use SimpleSortingVector, and write your own Comparator implementation to sort the data way you want it.

It's all in the javadocs.
