1. What is the error message ? Isn't it explicit enough ?
2. Did you check the API of Collections#sort ? Does it allow to sort a Set ?

we cannot sort the Hashset using Collection.sort() as sort method does not accept the HashSet as parameter
I think you should look into the API
 
I guess everyone has an angle. Fine, what do you want? Just know that you cannot have this tiny ad:
