      String query1="select * from emp order by name, job";
      ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(query);
      System.out.println("Table contents sorted by Name");
      System.out.println("Id Name    Job");
      while (rs.next()) {
         int id = rs.getInt("id");
         String name = rs.getString("name");
         String job = rs.getString("job");
         System.out.println(id + "  " + name+"   "+job);

      rs = stmt.executeQuery(query1);
      System.out.println("Table contents after sorted

      while (rs.next()) {
         int id = rs.getInt("id");
