TreeSet sorts the elements according to the natural order of the elements.
But since the class 'Person' does not implement the 'Comparator' interface which is used to compare the elements, you are getting the class cast exception. I mean the person class is casted to the type 'Comparator'

Please correct me if im wrong.

You should get errors in both the following lines

c = b; // 1
s = c * b; //4

In first line a byte variable cannot be assigned to a char because
char cannot have negative values.

In the 4th line the result of any arithmetic operation is an int , but it's assigned to a shot and hence the error.

Srinivasa, Are you sure you have answered the above mentioned Question only?

I dont find anything like
c = b; // 1
s = c * b; //4
in this code.

import java.util.*;
public class Test1{
public static void main(String a[]){
Set s = new TreeSet();
s.add(new Person(20));
s.add(new Person(10));
System.out.println(s);
}
}
class Person{
Person(int i){}
}

No, you answered this question first, and then it seems like you answered another question as well in this thread

I don't understand how s=c*b answer the question about the TreeSet...

So, concerning the TreeSet :

The ClassCastException is due to an attempt of casting a Person object to a Comparable object (not a Comparator).

A TreeSet maintains element sorted.
If the TreeSet is instanciated using a Comparator object (Using constructors : TreeSet(Comparator c) or TreeSet(SortedSet s)), this Comparator is used for comparing elements.

Otherwise, (instanciating the TreeSet with TreeSet() or TreeSet(Collection c)), elements must implements Comparable;

Look at Javadoc for the constructor TreeSet() :
Constructs a new, empty set, sorted according to the elements' natural order. All elements inserted into the set must implement the Comparable interface.

The above was another reply to the question, even this is not related to TreeSet

Thats why bartenders insist not to post different questions in the same Thread. This wastes time ...
