It's part of the DataObjectManager package.

the thing is i tries following the tutorial step by step using 2.4 but i get an error say these classes doesnt exist.
i want to implement front-end sorting

Oh, sheesh.. that hasn't existed in like 2 years. I should remove that documentation. That whole adventure was a really bad idea. Data should be sorted in the backend.

was just trying to be too ambitious I know DOM sorts very well and let me use that.
thanks for your time UC

Sure, no problem.. It's funny, I was just thinking, in the 2 years that's been gone, I think you're the only one to have ever asked about it, so I think it was probably a good move.

Sure man I think it was a good move but did it ever work?

Yeah, it worked great, but the big hurdle was that I wanted to make it easy for people to write the sortable markup structure without having to remember all the specific classnames and attributes that were required, so I made up these new template tags like:
<% control SomeSortableItems %>
$LI sortable data $_LI
<% end_control %>
Which, of course, really blurred the lines of the MVC pattern, and was ultimately, just.. gimmicky, I guess.
