Java Application – TableSorter

Name the Java Class:  TableSorter

Create a Java application that reads in a Table of Contents from a text file and then displays that Table in sorted order.

Create three parallel arrays. Read the Table of contents from a file named toc.txt.  The first number in the file is the number of chapters followed by a chapter on each row.  Instantiate the arrays to the size indicated and fill the appropriate array with the proper data for each row from the file.
For example: 7;A program by any other name;345
Would be chapter number 7; is titled “A program by any other name”; and starts on page 345.

Create a method to sort the arrays named sortContents that receives the arrays as parameters.  Sort them using whichever approach you would like. However, you must write the sort and cannot use any of the built in sort functions. Section 7.11 on page 279 of the text is a place to find one of the sorting algorithms as well as the demonstration code.

You should create and use a method named displayTable that
Receives three parallel arrays as parameters and then displays the report shown below.

Download the toc.txt file from Moodle and use it for the input in your assignment.

Program output should look like this:
