hi
i have the following comparator class written to compare to players in a team by batting averages

i would now like to write a method called add to my Club class which passes a Player and a comparator hense writing a main program which which prints information about each player in the club in decreasing order of batting average?

Club class contains an array list and also add and remove player methods

how would this be achieved?
any hints or pseudo code would be much apprecaited
thanks

the comparator code

It would be better form only to have one return in the compare() method, but apart from that I think it ought to work. And you can change the 2nd if to an else-if

I thought you already had an add method. And we discussed sorting a couple of days ago.

I think you will find it much easier to add and sort separately. Apart from the fact that it is a bad idea to have a method which carries out two unrelated tasks.
