Yeah sure, you can. Have you tried something and it did not work?
Just trying to find out whether you have read this FAQ entry: Show some effort

Hi Ashok,

Here is the program you can use to sort the string.

Well Navin,
We do not just post code if it looks like that there has been no effort shown before posting the code. This is a javaranch policy.
Using Collections.sort() or Arrays.sort() will give the desired result as the natural-ordering of strings is alphabetical.

...also, when you *do* post code, you'll find that the [code] tags make it much more readable, and therefore easier for the person you're trying to help, understand for next time...
