sorting

I need to sort an array list based on values in another list.

For ex if arraylist 1 constains { A , B , C, D}

and arraylist two contains { C , D, A, B}

my sorted list output should contain { C , D, A, B}

what is the best way to implement this. for now i just iterate using a for loop and store it in a new list and replace the old list. I know it is not a good approach

any help is higly appreciated.
