- Type Parameters:
B- supported type of NamedBean
- All Implemented Interfaces:
- Direct Known Subclasses:
public class NamedBeanComparator<B extends NamedBean> extends Object implements Comparator<B>
Uses the built-in Comparable interface of the named beans.
A System Name is a system prefix followed by type letter then a suffix with a
system-specific format. This class first compares on prefix, then if the
prefixes are equal it compares the type letter, then if they're still equal
it does an
AlphanumComparator compare on suffix.
This sorts on the information in the NamedBean itself, including using the actual type by deferring prefix comparison into the specific NamedBean subclass. This is different from the (deprecated) SystemNameComparator, which only does a common lexical sort. See the Names documentation page.
