Hi,

How can I sort a hashtable in J2ME? There is no comparator that can be used.

You can't actually sort a hashtable - a hashtable is not a linear structure. However you can create a list of entries contained in a hashtable and sort the list. You just have to do it the old-fashioned way and code it all yourself.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
