Our resource entities are getting sorted using Ascii values which produces an ordering that is inconsistent with human logic while doing an resource save.

For eg: text1, text2, text 10 gets sorted as text1, text10 , text 2

We expect it to be sorted as text1, text2, text10.

Is there any way to get the entries sorted while we do a resource save,

or is there any other way to approach it ?

This is a very common problem. shows Xtext 2.9.2 rather than 2.13.0 as the latest release.

I am not aware of EMF sorting things at all, so I suspect it may be your broken sorting algorithm.

If you want correctly sorted hybrid alphanumerics you need a hybrid alphanumeric comparator. Else number them as text001, text009, text010 etc.
