Java Collection, TreeMap Exercises: Exercise-7 with Solution

Write a Java program to sort keys in Tree Map by using comparator.

Sample Solution:-

Java Code:

import java.util.*;
import java.util.Map.Entry;  
public class Example7 {  
    public static void main(String args[]){  
  TreeMap<String,String> tree_map1 = new TreeMap<String,String>(new sort_key());
   // Put elements to the map 
  tree_map1.put("C2", "Red");
  tree_map1.put("C4", "Green");
  tree_map1.put("C3", "Black");
  tree_map1.put("C1", "White"); 
 class sort_key implements Comparator<String>{
    public int compare(String str1, String str2) {
        return str1.compareTo(str2);

Sample Output:
