Description
A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
TabularData displays in jconsole are purely by hash order of the Object[] key.  This makes finding the data of interest more difficult than it should be.  Given that each Object in the Object[] is Comparable or can be easily converted into a Comparable, the display should at least have an option to sort the results using the first key index as the primary sorting key, the second as the secondary, and so on.

JUSTIFICATION :
It is currently unnecessarily difficult to find the data of interest.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
Sort the results.
ACTUAL -
The results are in hash table order.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

Sort the values using the index names as specified in the TabularType.
