Class PredicatedList<E>

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Iterable<E>, Collection<E>, List<E>

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

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

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

     List<String> list =
       PredicatedList.predicatedList(new ArrayList<String>(), PredicateUtils.notNullPredicate());

    This class is Serializable from Commons Collections 3.1.

        public static <T> PredicatedList<T> predicatedList​(List<T> list,
                                                           Predicate<? super T> predicate)
        Factory method to create a predicated (validating) list.

        If there are any elements already in the list being decorated, they are validated.

        Type Parameters:
        T - the type of the elements in the list
        list - the list to decorate, must not be null
        predicate - the predicate to use for validation, must not be null
        a new predicated list
        NullPointerException - if list or predicate is null
        IllegalArgumentException - if the list contains invalid elements
