Differences stile to compare

Hello, Look at this two methods should it be correct by changing some places???

  public int compareTo(Object obj){
    Treet other = (Treet) obj;
    if (equals(other)){
        return 0; 
    int dateCmp = mCreationDate.compareTo(other.mCreationDate);

      if(dateCmp == 0){
        return mDescription.compareTo(other.mDescription); 
    return dateCmp;

Hi Araz,

In your code above you are calling compareTo inside itself. That's not going to go well!

What challenge, or course, are you trying to get through here? I'll take a look and see what we can figure out.


Hello Steve, Thank you! its about data Structures the comparable exercize but i did it! so its okey!
