Hi people

I am having many sets of values(X,Y Coordinate values)

I need to compare all(sets) coordinate values and find the value which is smallest.
In this case Answer is 10,15.

You could play with the Comparable interface, and use that to let it sort...

For the sake of speed, I made public members For total correctness you would have to override the equals() and the hashcode() methods...

class Mahesh

public Point Foo() // This function returns minimum coord as point object
Hashtable hashobj; //This contains the values as key value pairs
