Subject OT Friday - Random sorting
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2005 07:51:10 GMT
Hello.

 

I am trying to write a comparator that randomly sorts a collection.

 

I have something like this:

 

new Comparator() {

      

      /**

       * @see java.util.Comparator#compare(java.lang.Object,
java.lang.Object)

       */

      public int compare(Object object1, Object object2) {

            

            long time = new Date().getTime();

 

            Random random1 = new Random(time);

            Integer x1 = new Integer(random1.nextInt());

            random1.setSeed(++time);

            Integer x2 = new Integer(random1.nextInt());

            

            return x1.compareTo(x2);

      }

}

 

But sadly to no avail.

 

Has anyone done this before or have any suggestions.
