Reverse Priority Queue (Example 4 for Alan)
import java.util.Comparator;
import java.util.PriorityQueue;
// Write a program that takes in 10 integers via command-line and prints them out in reverse natural order using a PriorityQueue. (this should use a Comparator)
public class ReversePriorityQueue
public class Reverse implements Comparator<Integer>
public int compare(Integer arg0, Integer arg1)
return arg1 - arg0;
public void reverseNaturalOrder(int[] a)
Reverse r = new Reverse();
PriorityQueue<Integer> q = new PriorityQueue<Integer>(11, r);
for(int i : a)
public static void main(String args[])
int[] a = new int[args.length];
for(int i=0; i<args.length; i++)
a[i] = Integer.parseInt(args[i]);
ReversePriorityQueue x = new ReversePriorityQueue();

PriorityQueue<Integer> reversePriorityQueue = new PriorityQueue<>((o1, o2) -> o2.compareTo(o1));
