import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class AddressBook2 {
 public static void main (String[] args)
   {
      JList list,list2,list3,list4;
        DefaultListModel model,model2,model3,model4;

      StringTokenizer tokenizer;
        String line;
        String addBook="";
        String name,address,phnum,notes;
      String file="Addressbook.nad";
      int phone_num,search_num, count = 0;

        ArrayList addList = new ArrayList();
      try
      {
         FileReader fr = new FileReader (file);
         BufferedReader inFile = new BufferedReader (fr);

         line = inFile.readLine();
         while (line != null)
         {
                    tokenizer = new StringTokenizer (line,"~");

                    name = tokenizer.nextToken();
                    address = tokenizer.nextToken();
                    phnum = tokenizer.nextToken();
                    notes = tokenizer.nextToken();
               addList.add(new AddressEntry(name,address,phnum,notes));
                    line = inFile.readLine();


         }

         inFile.close();
      }
      catch (FileNotFoundException exception)
      {
         System.out.println ("The file " + file + " was not found.");
      }
      catch (IOException exception)
      {
         System.out.println (exception);
      }

        Collections.sort(addList);



        model = new DefaultListModel();
        model2 = new DefaultListModel();
        model3 = new DefaultListModel();
        model4 = new DefaultListModel();

        list = new JList(model);
        list2 = new JList(model2);
        list3 = new JList(model3);
        list4 = new JList(model4);

        for(int i=0;i<addList.size();i++)
        {

            Object b= addList.get(i);
            model.addElement(((AddressEntry)b).getName());
            model2.addElement(((AddressEntry)b).getAddress());
            model3.addElement(((AddressEntry)b).getPhnum());
            model4.addElement(((AddressEntry)b).getNotes());

        }

        JFrame frame = new JFrame ("List");
        JLabel l1 = new JLabel ("Name");
        JLabel l2 = new JLabel ("Address");
        JLabel l3 = new JLabel ("Telephone Number");
        JLabel l4 = new JLabel ("Notes");



        frame.getContentPane().setLayout(new GridLayout(2,4,1,1));
        frame.getContentPane().add (l1);
        frame.getContentPane().add (l2);
        frame.getContentPane().add (l3);
        frame.getContentPane().add (l4);
        frame.getContentPane().add (list);
        frame.getContentPane().add (list2);
        frame.getContentPane().add (list3);
        frame.getContentPane().add (list4);

        frame.pack();
        frame.setVisible(true);
      frame.setDefaultCloseOperation (JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    }
