import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.TreeSet;

public class TreeSetDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
   // creating a TreeSet 
   TreeSet <Integer>treeadd = new TreeSet<Integer>();
     
   // adding in the tree set
   treeadd.add(1);
   treeadd.add(13);
   treeadd.add(17);
   treeadd.add(2);
     
   // create descending iterator
   Iterator iterator;
   iterator = treeadd.descendingIterator();
     
   // displaying the Tree set data
   System.out.println("Tree set data in descending order: ");     
   while (iterator.hasNext()){
   System.out.println(iterator.next() + " ");
   }
   }    
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result.
