Class FixedSizeMap<K,​V>

  • Type Parameters:
    K - the type of the keys in this map
    V - the type of the values in this map
    All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Map<K,​V>, BoundedMap<K,​V>, Get<K,​V>, IterableGet<K,​V>, IterableMap<K,​V>, Put<K,​V>

    public class FixedSizeMap<K,​V>
    extends AbstractMapDecorator<K,​V>
    implements BoundedMap<K,​V>, Serializable
    Decorates another Map to fix the size, preventing add/remove.

    Any action that would change the size of the map is disallowed. The put method is allowed to change the value associated with an existing key however.

    If trying to remove or clear the map, an UnsupportedOperationException is thrown. If trying to put a new mapping into the map, an IllegalArgumentException is thrown. This is because the put method can succeed if the mapping's key already exists in the map, so the put method is not always unsupported.

    Note that FixedSizeMap is not synchronized and is not thread-safe. If you wish to use this map from multiple threads concurrently, you must use appropriate synchronization. The simplest approach is to wrap this map using Collections.synchronizedMap(Map). This class may throw exceptions when accessed by concurrent threads without synchronization.

    This class is Serializable from Commons Collections 3.1.

    • Method Detail

      • fixedSizeMap

        public static <K,​V> FixedSizeMap<K,​V> fixedSizeMap​(Map<K,​V> map)
        Factory method to create a fixed size map.
        Type Parameters:
        K - the key type
        V - the value type
        map - the map to decorate, must not be null
        a new fixed size map
        NullPointerException - if map is null
      • put

        public V put​(K key,
                     V value)
        Description copied from interface: Put
        Note that the return type is Object, rather than V as in the Map interface. See the class Javadoc for further info.
        Specified by:
        put in interface Map<K,​V>
        Specified by:
        put in interface Put<K,​V>
        put in class AbstractMapDecorator<K,​V>
        key - key with which the specified value is to be associated
        value - value to be associated with the specified key
        the previous value associated with key, or null if there was no mapping for key. (A null return can also indicate that the map previously associated null with key, if the implementation supports null values.)

      • remove

        public V remove​(Object key)
        Specified by:
        remove in interface Get<K,​V>
        Specified by:
        remove in interface Map<K,​V>
        remove in class AbstractMapDecorator<K,​V>
        key - key whose mapping is to be removed from the map
        the previous value associated with key, or null if there was no mapping for key.

      • isFull

        public boolean isFull()
        Description copied from interface: BoundedMap
        Returns true if this map is full and no new elements can be added.
        Specified by:
        isFull in interface BoundedMap<K,​V>
        true if the map is full
      • maxSize

        public int maxSize()
        Description copied from interface: BoundedMap
        Gets the maximum size of the map (the bound).
        Specified by:
        maxSize in interface BoundedMap<K,​V>
        the maximum number of elements the map can hold
