What Reverse method? There isn't a Reverse() method anywhere. You are creating a Reverse object. What can you not see about its workings? You have got the whole class there in front of you Go through it with a pencil and paper and see how it works.

Also, try changing the compare method by switching the o1 and o2 around in the return statement. That should give you a clue of what is happening.

Read the API documentation of the Collections.sort(List, Comparator) method and of java.util.Comparator.
