Class TreeBag<E>

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

public class TreeBag<E> extends AbstractMapBag<E> implements SortedBag<E>, Serializable
Implements SortedBag, using a TreeMap to provide the data storage. This is the standard implementation of a sorted bag.

Order will be maintained among the bag members and can be viewed through the iterator.

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.

    • add

      public boolean add(E object)
      Adds a new element to the bag, incrementing its count in the underlying map.

    • comparator

      public Comparator<? super E> comparator()
      Description copied from interface: SortedBag
      Returns the comparator associated with this sorted set, or null if it uses its elements' natural ordering.

      Returns the first (lowest) member.
      Specified by:
      first in interface SortedBag<E>
      the first element in the sorted bag
    • getMap

      Description copied from class: AbstractMapBag
      Utility method for implementations to access the map that backs this bag. Not intended for interactive use outside of subclasses.
      getMap in class AbstractMapBag<E>
      the map being used by the Bag
    • last

      public E last()
      Description copied from interface: SortedBag
      Returns the last (highest) member.
      Specified by:
