Class PredicatedSet<E>

Type Parameters:
E - the type of the elements in this set
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Iterable<E>, Collection<E>, Set<E>
Direct Known Subclasses:

public class PredicatedSet<E> extends PredicatedCollection<E> implements Set<E>
Decorates another Set to validate that all additions match a specified predicate.

This set exists to provide validation for the decorated set. It is normally created to decorate an empty set. If an object cannot be added to the set, an IllegalArgumentException is thrown.

One usage would be to ensure that no null entries are added to the set.

Set set = PredicatedSet.decorate(new HashSet(), NotNullPredicate.INSTANCE);

This class is Serializable from Commons Collections 3.1.

      set - the set to decorate, must not be null
      predicate - the predicate to use for validation, must not be null
      NullPointerException - if set or predicate is null
      IllegalArgumentException - if the set contains invalid elements
