The Query API includes a variety of sort-related methods to order search results by field. Sorted fields must be indexes.
Two common sorts are performed with the
sortDescending methods. The following query sorts
Author objects in descending alphabetical order by last name:
List<Author> authors = Query.from(Author.class).sortDescending("lastName");
For spatial queries for objects containing a Location field, you can use
sortFarthest. These methods sort results in closet or farthest order from a given location.
For advanced sorting, you can use the
sortRelevant methods, which prioritize a specified field value with a specified weight.
All of the sort-related methods use the Sorter class. You can create a custom
Sorter class and add it to the
Query instance with the sort method.
