Getting folder contents - date wise sorted ?

  Asked By: Lydia    Date: May 07    Category: Java    Views: 7841

I wish to get file/ folder names within a folder sorted in ascending
order by date. If I write:

//...example code....

File tmpFolder = new Folder("c:/temp");
String allFiles[] = tmpFolder.list(); // getting contents

// ... end of code ...

here allFiles[] would have code in any order as specs says, not
necessarily in any order. Any suggestions?

Well, list() will give you the array as you've shown. Add the elements of that
array to a List. Then, what I would do is create a Comparator that operates on
File objects. This comparator uses the date  to determine if one object is less
than another. Then use Collections.sort(List, Comparator). That's it.
