MulitThreads Problem
i am trying to write the code for a multithread where it can sort both numeric and string data then sort the data in an array were pairs of arrays are compared and swapped if out of order any help would be great. the code so far is as follows

public class MultiThread implements Runnable{
public int countDown=4;
public int threadNumber;
private static int threadCount=0;
public int[] myarray = {3,1,4,2};
public MultiThread()
{
threadNumber =++ threadCount;
System.out.println("Making" + threadNumber);
}
public void swap(int[] myarray,int a,int b)
{
int tmp;
tmp = a;
a = b;
b = tmp;
System.out.println(a +" "+ b);
return;
}
public void run()
{
while(true)
{
System.out.println("Thread"+
threadNumber+"("+ countDown +")");

while (true){
try

{
if (myarray[0] <= myarray[1] && myarray[1] <= myarray[2] && myarray[2] <= myarray[3]);

Thread.yield();
Thread.sleep(1000);
if (myarray[0] > myarray[1])
{
swap(myarray,myarray[0],myarray[1]);
}
if (myarray[1] > myarray[2])
{
swap(myarray,myarray[1],myarray[2]);
}
if (myarray[2] > myarray[3])
{
swap(myarray,myarray[2],myarray[3]);
}
System.out.println(myarray[0] +" "+ myarray[1] +" "+ myarray[2] +" "+ myarray[3]);
}
catch (InterruptedException e){}
//if (myarray[0] <= myarray[1] && myarray[1] <= myarray[2] && myarray[2] <= myarray[3]);
// {
// return;
// }
if(-- countDown == 0 )
return;
}
}
}
public static void main ( String args[] )
{
for(int i =0; i<4; i++)
{
MultiThread mT = new MultiThread();
Thread t = new Thread(mT);
t.start();
}
System.out.println("All Threads Started");
}

}
