Randomised sequences

Let me make sure I understand what you're looking for.

You have several thousand unique character strings.  For each string,
you would like to produce X (where X is an integer > 1) additional
strings, each string to have the same length and characters as the
original string, but in a different order.  Further, you would like to
put all the original strings in one file, and have all the random
strings deposited in a different file.

Can you run Java Swing programs?
