Class TransformedSplitMap<J,​K,​U,​V>

  • Type Parameters:
    J - the type of the keys to put in this map
    K - the type of the keys to get in this map
    U - the type of the values to put in this map
    V - the type of the values to get in this map
    All Implemented Interfaces:, Get<K,​V>, IterableGet<K,​V>, Put<J,​U>

    public class TransformedSplitMap<J,​K,​U,​V>
    extends AbstractIterableGetMapDecorator<K,​V>
    implements Put<J,​U>,
    Decorates another Map to transform objects that are added.

    The Map put methods and Map.Entry setValue method are affected by this class. Thus objects must be removed or searched for using their transformed form. For example, if the transformation converts Strings to Integers, you must use the Integer form to remove objects.

    Note that TransformedMap 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.

    The "put" and "get" type constraints of this class are mutually independent; contrast with TransformedMap which, by virtue of its implementing Map<K, V>, must be constructed in such a way that its read and write parameters are generalized to a common (super-)type. In practice this would often mean >Object, Object>, defeating much of the usefulness of having parameterized types.

    On the downside, this class is not drop-in compatible with Map but is intended to be worked with either directly or by Put and Get generalizations.

        public static <J,​K,​U,​V> TransformedSplitMap<J,​K,​U,​V> transformingMap​(java.util.Map<K,​V> map,
                                                                                                                 Transformer<? super J,​? extends K> keyTransformer,
                                                                                                                 Transformer<? super U,​? extends V> valueTransformer)
        Factory method to create a transforming map.

        If there are any elements already in the map being decorated, they are NOT transformed.

        Type Parameters:
        J - the input key type
        K - the output key type
        U - the input value type
        V - the output value type
        map - the map to decorate, must not be null
        keyTransformer - the transformer to use for key conversion, must not be null
        valueTransformer - the transformer to use for value conversion, must not be null
        a new transformed map
        java.lang.NullPointerException - if map or either of the transformers is null

        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 Put<J,​K>
        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.)
