Program to sort Employee list on basis of name in descending order by implementing Comparator interface and overriding its compare method

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Collections;
import java.util.Comparator;
class Employee implements Comparator<Employee>{
   String name;
   String id;
  
   public Employee() {}
  
   public Employee(String name, String id) {
       this.name = name;
       this.id = id;
   }
  
   @Override
   public int compare(Employee obj1, Employee obj2) {
          // sort Employee on basis of id(descending order)
          return obj2.name.compareTo(obj1.name);
   }

   // toString() method overrides Object class’s toString() method.
   // toString() method is used to give a string representation of an object.
   @Override
   public String toString() {
       return "Employee{" + "name=" + name + ", id=" + id  + '}';
   }
  
  
}

       System.out.println("\nlist after sorting on basis of name(descending order) : \n"+list);
      
   }
}
/*OUTPUT
list Before sorting :
[Employee{name=sam, id=4}, Employee{name=amy, id=2}, Employee{name=brad, id=1}]
list after sorting on basis of name(descending order) :
[Employee{name=sam, id=4}, Employee{name=brad, id=1}, Employee{name=amy, id=2}]
