Class HashBag<E>

Type Parameters:
E - the type of elements in this bag
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Iterable<E>, Collection<E>, Bag<E>

public class HashBag<E> extends AbstractMapBag<E> implements Serializable
Implements Bag, using a HashMap to provide the data storage. This is the standard implementation of a bag.

A Bag stores each object in the collection together with a count of occurrences. Extra methods on the interface allow multiple copies of an object to be added or removed at once. It is important to read the interface Javadoc carefully as several methods violate the Collection interface specification.
