i want if i sort out the values of the values, it will be sorted but the variable they are originally assigned on will follow the sequence of the sorted values...
any ideas to do this?
i am lacking out of ideas that's why i asked help here.
hoping somebody could lend me a hand.
thanks in advance.

You could create a wrapper class for your variable-name / value pair like this:
provide hashCode() and compareTo() methods based on Integer values, then create an ArrayList of these wrapper objects
and sort this ArrayList with Collections.sort method. Finally, iterate trough the array and print name / value pairs.
You could also create an array of these objects and sort it with Arrays.sort.

I think that you'll also want to make this wrapper class implement Comparable<IntWrapper>
