Subject Re: document order related questions
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2007 14:08:43 GMT

Does anyone know how to order a collection of child nodes by a specific
property from the getNodes() call? or do i have to manually order the nodes
using java?  Please let me know if you have any ideas.  Is there a way to
query just for a parents child nodes and put an order by clause in the
query?
