Program: How to create a TreeSet with comparator?


Description:

To implement your own sorting functionality with TreeSet, you have to pass Comparator object along with TreeSet constructor call. The Comparator implementation holds the sorting logic. You have to override compare() method to provide the sorting logic. Below example shows how to sort TreeSet using comparator.


Code:
package com.java2novice.treeset;

import java.util.Comparator;
import java.util.TreeSet;

public class MySetWithCompr {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		
		TreeSet<String> ts = new TreeSet<String>(new MyComp());
		ts.add("RED");
		ts.add("ORANGE");
		ts.add("BLUE");
		ts.add("GREEN");
		System.out.println(ts);
	}
}

class MyComp implements Comparator<String>{

	@Override
	public int compare(String str1, String str2) {
		return str1.compareTo(str2);
	}
	
}

Output:
[BLUE, GREEN, ORANGE, RED]

Knowledge Centre
String Vs StringBuffer
We know that String is immutable object. We can not change the value of a String object once it is initiated. If we try to change the value of the existing String object then it creates new object rather than changing the value of the existing object. So incase, we are going to do more modificatios on String, then use StringBuffer. StringBuffer updates the existing objects value, rather creating new object.
