    Hi TT,

    I would make a new class that extends SearchResultBean and implements Comparable to use Collections.sort(List).

    Another question, i would use ArrayList instead Vector due to performace, if you don't need a synchronized list (Vector).

      Better yet -- use variation






      supplying comarator that is aware how to compare IPrincipal objects.

      This way you can avoid creation of unnecessary classes.
