Sorting an ArrayList


Sorting an ArrayList

print("code sample");Hello All,

I am working on a program for school and I am having trouble with sorting my list. The numbers I receive in my output are correct, but not in ascending order as required.

Here is my current code

package gtt1_task2b;

import java.util.Scanner; import; import; import; import; import; import; import; import; import java.util.ArrayList; import java.util.Collections; import java.util.Iterator; /** * */ public class GTT1_Task2B{

  public static void main(String[] args) throws FileNotFoundException, IOException
 // Prompt for the input and output file names
    Scanner properties = new Scanner(;
    System.out.print("Input file: ");
    String inputFile =;
 // Create variables
    String id = null ;
    BufferedWriter pwfo = null;
    pwfo = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter("C:\\Users\\Documents\\NetBeansProjects\\GTT1_Task2\\src\\gtt1_task2\\overview.txt"));
    } catch (IOException e){    
       PrintWriter pwo = new PrintWriter(pwfo);
    File input = new File(inputFile);
    BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(input));
    int count = 0;
    double sum = 0;
    //int i = 0;
    //ArrayList<Double> plist = new ArrayList<Double>();

while ((id = in.readLine())!= null)
{ count++; String[] proplist = id.split("[\s}]"); Double pvalue = Double.parseDouble(proplist[2]);

        for (int i=0; i < proplist.length; i++)
            sum+= pvalue;
        System.out.println("Total properties listed:  " + count);
        System.out.println("Total value of properties listed: " + sum + "\n");

        try {
    ArrayList<String> propids = new ArrayList<String>();       
    Scanner idlist = new Scanner((input));
      //print property ids

       while (idlist.hasNextLine())
         id = idlist.nextLine();
         String[] fields =id.split("[\\s}]");
         String pids = (fields [0]);   
         for (int i =0; i<propids.size();i++)
                Iterator i =propids.iterator();


      //close Print Writer
      }catch(Exception e){

I am really new at Java...This is only the second program I am writing for school and this site was very helpful in pointing out a key error I had in my first program, so I am hopeful you will be able to help me now.

Thank you in advance for any assistance!!!!
