Sorting MAP by values

I am opening this again with specific question.

I am reading some data from properties file, & need to sort the map by values.


1 = Hi
2 = hello
3 = Bye
4 = Thank You
5 = Thank You
6 = Bye

I tried with following

Problem with this code is it overrides the duplicate values.

Is there any other way I can sort the data, please suggest.

Thanks in advance.
Waez Ali.
