I don't believe you can, as LinkedHashMap only maintains insertion order and does have any methods for inserting between elements. You should either use a different collections class, or rebuild the LinkedHashMap (can be expensive if this is frequent).

Try an implementation of SortedMap such as TreeMap. You can control the ordering by having each object in the map implement the Comparable interface.
