Hi,
The client has come up with the requirement that I need to sort most of the web pages in our web application. They didnt give me which Web Pages instead they asked me to come up with the list.
What is the criteria I need to look for in order to do sorting in the web pages because there are so many pages with and with out pagination. Any help is appreciated on this.
regards
sudha

Ummm, I'm not sure what else to tell you except to look for pages that have tabular data that isn't sorted. What else are you looking for?

Bear,
I am planning to say that if the tabular data has 10 - 15 records and the size is not going to increase in the near future ,then there is no need to do the soring as it is easy readable.
Is it convincing?

Would you not say that that's for the client to decide? If he wants the data sorted, I'd sort it.

And yes, even small tables of 10-15 records are easier to peruse when sorted.

Yes. If the requirements say to sort all tabular data, I woul think we should do so. This can even be done on the client side via Javascript. Then you can give the user the option to sort via the column headings.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
