This is mycode sofar.
I already figure it out how to sort by name but i can't sort by price because compareTo don't accept int.
Any suggestion ?

Also I will be surprised it this line works and not give compilation error.

if(this.price < tmp.price)



your compareTo method is static ..so you cant use this.price in static context.

I'm a little confused. It seems that your compareTo is already sorting it by price, not name.

In the first case .. compareTo of object String is called. This will not be applicable for int which is primitive.

Try this code..It will work with some minor modification.
