public int compare(DisaggregationSourceRuptureInfo sourceInfo1,
- Compares its two arguments for order. Returns a negative integer, zero, or
a positive integer as the first argument is less than, equal to, or greater than the second.
The implementor must ensure that sgn(compare(x, y)) == -sgn(compare(y, x))
for all x and y. (This implies that compare(x, y) must throw an exception if
and only if compare(y, x) throws an exception.)
The implementor must also ensure that the relation is transitive:
((compare(x, y)>0) && (compare(y, z)>0)) implies compare(x, z)>0.
Finally, the implementer must ensure that compare(x, y)==0 implies that
sgn(compare(x, z))==sgn(compare(y, z)) for all z.
It is generally the case, but not strictly required that
(compare(x, y)==0) == (x.equals(y)). Generally speaking, any
comparator that violates this condition should clearly indicate this fact.
The recommended language is "Note: this comparator imposes orderings that
are inconsistent with equals."
