We need a method to sort String arrays in a specific way.

Test array = {"1", "2", "a", "b", "A", "B"}

Collections.sort gives the result:

A B a b 1 2

What we need is something like:

1 2 A a B b

This is just a simple test case. But that is the pattern of sorting required.
Can you help?

The interface is Comparable.... Just create one for the specific sort order you want and pass it to the appropriate Arrays method for sorting.

The collection framework uses the interface Comparible. If you really need a differend sorting algorithm you need to implement your own. Write a simple wrapper for the data that implement the Comparible method... and that's it.
