Class CompositeFileComparator

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class CompositeFileComparatorextends Objectimplements Serializable
    Compare two files using a set of delegate file Comparator.

    This comparator can be used to sort lists or arrays of files by combining a number other comparators.

    Example of sorting a list of files by type (i.e. directory or file) and then by name:

           CompositeFileComparator comparator =                       new CompositeFileComparator(                                 (AbstractFileComparator) DirectoryFileComparator.DIRECTORY_COMPARATOR,                                 (AbstractFileComparator) NameFileComparator.NAME_COMPARATOR);       List<File> list = ...       comparator.sort(list);
