This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi Larry, I haven't done much myself yet with the Array class, but a quick look at the javadoc index (S for sort) shows static void (sort Object a, Comparator c) You can define a dateCompare class that implements the Comparator interface type that has the behavior you want in the compare method that has formal parameters like: int compare(Object o1, Object o2) the return value, exceptions thrown, and other methods that require implementation (equals method) can be found in javaDoc under the Comparator interface. Granted, this reply is not a detailed, working example code listing that you can copy/paste into your program, but it has a few hints that might help you in the general direction you might want to go, and I or others can fill in missing details as you discover them.
