Currently Being Moderated
Hi All ,
I i have the data in below format:

Name     Age     Skill     Company
Vass     21     Java     Zylog
Samy     24     PB     HP
Lee     18     ADF     CTS
Reng     16     Java     Info

I converted this data into java collections List<Hash Map> like this.
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.List;

public class HashMapDemo {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Create a hash map
        List<HashMap> list = new ArrayList<HashMap>();
        HashMap hm = new HashMap();
        hm.put("Name", new String("Vass"));
        hm.put("Age", new Integer(21));
        hm.put("Company", new String("Zylog"));
        hm.put("skill", new String("Java"));
        HashMap hm1 = new HashMap();
        hm1.put("Name", new String("Samy"));
        hm1.put("Age", new Integer(24));
        hm1.put("Company", new String("HP"));
        hm1.put("skill", new String("PB"));
        HashMap hm2 = new HashMap();
        hm2.put("Name", new String("Lee"));
        hm2.put("Age", new Integer(18));
        hm2.put("Company", new String("CTS"));
        hm2.put("skill", new String("ADF"));
        HashMap hm3 = new HashMap();
        hm3.put("Name", new String("Reng"));
        hm3.put("Age", new Integer(16));
        hm3.put("Company", new String("Info"));
        hm3.put("skill", new String("Java"));
        Iterator i = list.iterator();
        while (i.hasNext()) {

As per data (table format) i want to sort the data in Column level
how can i to achieve ?.

List<HashMap> is type of collection is help to me?

Any idea?
