Method Detail

compare

public int compare(java.lang.Object o1,
                   java.lang.Object o2)
Description copied from interface: java.util.Comparator
Compares its two arguments for order. Returns a negative integer, zero, or a positive integer as the first argument is less than, equal to, or greater than the second.

The implementor must ensure that sgn(compare(x, y)) == -sgn(compare(y, x)) for all x and y. (This implies that compare(x, y) must throw an exception if and only if compare(y, x) throws an exception.)

The implementor must also ensure that the relation is transitive: ((compare(x, y)>0) && (compare(y, z)>0)) implies compare(x, z)>0.

Finally, the implementer must ensure that compare(x, y)==0 implies that sgn(compare(x, z))==sgn(compare(y, z)) for all z.

It is generally the case, but not strictly required that (compare(x, y)==0) == (x.equals(y)). Generally speaking, any comparator that violates this condition should clearly indicate this fact. The recommended language is "Note: this comparator imposes orderings that are inconsistent with equals."

Specified by:
compare in interface java.util.Comparator
Parameters:
o1 - the first object to be compared.
o2 - the second object to be compared.
Returns:
a negative integer, zero, or a positive integer as the first argument is less than, equal to, or greater than the second.

equals

public boolean equals(java.lang.Object obj)
Description copied from interface: java.util.Comparator
Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this Comparator. This method must obey the general contract of Object.equals(Object). Additionally, this method can return true only if the specified Object is also a comparator and it imposes the same ordering as this comparator. Thus, comp1.equals(comp2) implies that sgn(comp1.compare(o1, o2))==sgn(comp2.compare(o1, o2)) for every object reference o1 and o2.

Note that it is always safe not to override Object.equals(Object). However, overriding this method may, in some cases, improve performance by allowing programs to determine that two distinct Comparators impose the same order.

Specified by:
equals in interface java.util.Comparator
Parameters:
obj - the reference object with which to compare.
Returns:
true only if the specified object is also a comparator and it imposes the same ordering as this comparator.

Object.equals(java.lang.Object), Object.hashCode()
