Program to sort Employee list on basis of name in ascending 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) { = name; = id;
   public int compare(Employee obj1, Employee obj2) {
      //sort Employee on basis of name(ascending order)
   public String toString() {
       return "Employee{" + "name=" + name + ", id=" + id  + '}';

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