Hello everyone,

I started this week learning java using Eclipse. So far so good.
I was wondering how could I organize my classe names in my explorer tab.
For instance, I have a series of classes named:

Exercise1
Exercise10
Exercise2
Exercise3
Exercise4
Exercise5
Exercise6
Exercise7
Exercise8
Exercise9

I would like to have Exercise10 class next to Exercise9. Is that possible? Do you have any tips/hints?

Thank you!

Given that sorting text is generally lexicographic, unless there were the option to use a collator that handles numeric substrings as numbers that are compared numerically, this is no way to achieve your sorting order with the numbering scheme you've chosen. If you always used a two-digit number, i,e., to support 01, 02, ...99, then a lexicographic sort will give you the desired order.
