Output all the values in a DataRecord in alphabetical order

 // Generally when a sorted set or map is needed, a data structure should be chosen that stores the values
 // in a sorted way, such as TreeSet or TreeMap.  However, sometimes the set or map is returned by a library
 // and may not have sorted values, although sorted values are needed.
 List keys = sutil.sortSet(dataRecord.keySet(), true);
 for(int i = 0; i < keys.size(); i++)
   key = keys.get(i);
   session.log(key + " : " + dataRecord.get(key));
