Java Help on Sort command

Hi there,

I have following log files


I would like to sort them based on date and then log / log.1 / log.2 etc, however when i use sort -n the command sorts on based of first numeric occurrence that is server name.

The output i need is something like this
1) Sort based in date 20 July / 21 July / 22 July / accordingly.
2) Sort based on log.bz2 / log.1.bz2 / log.2.bz2 / accordingly.

Is any option with sort? Please help.
