What does it mean to sort a string? What would this particular string look like after "sorting"?

You can obtain a list of all substrings using a String.split("\\.") method call.

do you want to take a single string, break out the parts, and sort those?

or will you have dozens of strings like this, and you want to sort all of those based on various fields within the string?

and what do you mean by "it's unique"?


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
