Method Detail

subMap

ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V> subMap(K fromKey,
                                   boolean fromInclusive,
                                   K toKey,
                                   boolean toInclusive)
Description copied from interface: NavigableMap
Returns a view of the portion of this map whose keys range from fromKey to toKey. If fromKey and toKey are equal, the returned map is empty unless fromExclusive and toExclusive are both true. The returned map is backed by this map, so changes in the returned map are reflected in this map, and vice-versa. The returned map supports all optional map operations that this map supports.

The returned map will throw an IllegalArgumentException on an attempt to insert a key outside of its range, or to construct a submap either of whose endpoints lie outside its range.

Specified by:
subMap in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Parameters:
fromKey - low endpoint of the keys in the returned map
fromInclusive - true if the low endpoint is to be included in the returned view
toKey - high endpoint of the keys in the returned map
toInclusive - true if the high endpoint is to be included in the returned view
Returns:
a view of the portion of this map whose keys range from fromKey to toKey
Throws:
ClassCastException - if fromKey and toKey cannot be compared to one another using this map's comparator (or, if the map has no comparator, using natural ordering). Implementations may, but are not required to, throw this exception if fromKey or toKey cannot be compared to keys currently in the map.
NullPointerException - if fromKey or toKey is null and this map does not permit null keys
IllegalArgumentException - if fromKey is greater than toKey; or if this map itself has a restricted range, and fromKey or toKey lies outside the bounds of the range

headMap

ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V> headMap(K toKey,
                                    boolean inclusive)
Description copied from interface: NavigableMap
Returns a view of the portion of this map whose keys are less than (or equal to, if inclusive is true) toKey. The returned map is backed by this map, so changes in the returned map are reflected in this map, and vice-versa. The returned map supports all optional map operations that this map supports.

The returned map will throw an IllegalArgumentException on an attempt to insert a key outside its range.

Specified by:
headMap in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Parameters:
toKey - high endpoint of the keys in the returned map
inclusive - true if the high endpoint is to be included in the returned view
Returns:
a view of the portion of this map whose keys are less than (or equal to, if inclusive is true) toKey
Throws:
ClassCastException - if toKey is not compatible with this map's comparator (or, if the map has no comparator, if toKey does not implement Comparable). Implementations may, but are not required to, throw this exception if toKey cannot be compared to keys currently in the map.
NullPointerException - if toKey is null and this map does not permit null keys
IllegalArgumentException - if this map itself has a restricted range, and toKey lies outside the bounds of the range

tailMap

ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V> tailMap(K fromKey,
                                    boolean inclusive)
Description copied from interface: NavigableMap
Returns a view of the portion of this map whose keys are greater than (or equal to, if inclusive is true) fromKey. The returned map is backed by this map, so changes in the returned map are reflected in this map, and vice-versa. The returned map supports all optional map operations that this map supports.

The returned map will throw an IllegalArgumentException on an attempt to insert a key outside its range.

Specified by:
tailMap in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Parameters:
fromKey - low endpoint of the keys in the returned map
inclusive - true if the low endpoint is to be included in the returned view
Returns:
a view of the portion of this map whose keys are greater than (or equal to, if inclusive is true) fromKey
Throws:
ClassCastException - if fromKey is not compatible with this map's comparator (or, if the map has no comparator, if fromKey does not implement Comparable). Implementations may, but are not required to, throw this exception if fromKey cannot be compared to keys currently in the map.
NullPointerException - if fromKey is null and this map does not permit null keys
IllegalArgumentException - if this map itself has a restricted range, and fromKey lies outside the bounds of the range

Description copied from interface: NavigableMap
Returns a view of the portion of this map whose keys range from fromKey, inclusive, to toKey, exclusive. (If fromKey and toKey are equal, the returned map is empty.) The returned map is backed by this map, so changes in the returned map are reflected in this map, and vice-versa. The returned map supports all optional map operations that this map supports.

Returns:
a view of the portion of this map whose keys range from fromKey, inclusive, to toKey, exclusive
Throws:
ClassCastException - if fromKey and toKey cannot be compared to one another using this map's comparator (or, if the map has no comparator, using natural ordering). Implementations may, but are not required to, throw this exception if fromKey or toKey cannot be compared to keys currently in the map.
NullPointerException - if fromKey or toKey is null and this map does not permit null keys
IllegalArgumentException - if fromKey is greater than toKey; or if this map itself has a restricted range, and fromKey or toKey lies outside the bounds of the range

headMap

ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V> headMap(K toKey)
Description copied from interface: NavigableMap
Returns a view of the portion of this map whose keys are strictly less than toKey. The returned map is backed by this map, so changes in the returned map are reflected in this map, and vice-versa. The returned map supports all optional map operations that this map supports.

The returned map will throw an IllegalArgumentException on an attempt to insert a key outside its range.

Equivalent to headMap(toKey, false).

Specified by:
headMap in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Specified by:
headMap in interface SortedMap<K,V>
Parameters:
toKey - high endpoint (exclusive) of the keys in the returned map
Returns:
a view of the portion of this map whose keys are strictly less than toKey
Throws:
ClassCastException - if toKey is not compatible with this map's comparator (or, if the map has no comparator, if toKey does not implement Comparable). Implementations may, but are not required to, throw this exception if toKey cannot be compared to keys currently in the map.

IllegalArgumentException - if this map itself has a restricted range, and toKey lies outside the bounds of the range

tailMap

ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V> tailMap(K fromKey)
Description copied from interface: NavigableMap
Returns a view of the portion of this map whose keys are greater than or equal to fromKey. The returned map is backed by this map, so changes in the returned map are reflected in this map, and vice-versa. The returned map supports all optional map operations that this map supports.

The returned map will throw an IllegalArgumentException on an attempt to insert a key outside its range.

Equivalent to tailMap(fromKey, true).

Specified by:
tailMap in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Specified by:
tailMap in interface SortedMap<K,V>
Parameters:
fromKey - low endpoint (inclusive) of the keys in the returned map
Returns:
a view of the portion of this map whose keys are greater than or equal to fromKey
Throws:
ClassCastException - if fromKey is not compatible with this map's comparator (or, if the map has no comparator, if fromKey does not implement Comparable). Implementations may, but are not required to, throw this exception if fromKey cannot be compared to keys currently in the map.
NullPointerException - if fromKey is null and this map does not permit null keys
IllegalArgumentException - if this map itself has a restricted range, and fromKey lies outside the bounds of the range

descendingMap

ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V> descendingMap()
Returns a reverse order view of the mappings contained in this map. The descending map is backed by this map, so changes to the map are reflected in the descending map, and vice-versa.

The returned map has an ordering equivalent to Collections.reverseOrder(comparator()). The expression m.descendingMap().descendingMap() returns a view of m essentially equivalent to m.

Specified by:
descendingMap in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Returns:
a reverse order view of this map

navigableKeySet

NavigableSet<K> navigableKeySet()
Returns a NavigableSet view of the keys contained in this map. The set's iterator returns the keys in ascending order. The set is backed by the map, so changes to the map are reflected in the set, and vice-versa. The set supports element removal, which removes the corresponding mapping from the map, via the Iterator.remove, Set.remove, removeAll, retainAll, and clear operations. It does not support the add or addAll operations.

The view's iterator is a "weakly consistent" iterator that will never throw ConcurrentModificationException, and guarantees to traverse elements as they existed upon construction of the iterator, and may (but is not guaranteed to) reflect any modifications subsequent to construction.

Specified by:
navigableKeySet in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Returns:
a navigable set view of the keys in this map

keySet

NavigableSet<K> keySet()
Returns a NavigableSet view of the keys contained in this map. The set's iterator returns the keys in ascending order. The set is backed by the map, so changes to the map are reflected in the set, and vice-versa. The set supports element removal, which removes the corresponding mapping from the map, via the Iterator.remove, Set.remove, removeAll, retainAll, and clear operations. It does not support the add or addAll operations.

The view's iterator is a "weakly consistent" iterator that will never throw ConcurrentModificationException, and guarantees to traverse elements as they existed upon construction of the iterator, and may (but is not guaranteed to) reflect any modifications subsequent to construction.

This method is equivalent to method navigableKeySet.

Specified by:
keySet in interface Map<K,V>
Specified by:
keySet in interface SortedMap<K,V>
Returns:
a navigable set view of the keys in this map

descendingKeySet

NavigableSet<K> descendingKeySet()
Returns a reverse order NavigableSet view of the keys contained in this map. The set's iterator returns the keys in descending order. The set is backed by the map, so changes to the map are reflected in the set, and vice-versa. The set supports element removal, which removes the corresponding mapping from the map, via the Iterator.remove, Set.remove, removeAll, retainAll, and clear operations. It does not support the add or addAll operations.

The view's iterator is a "weakly consistent" iterator that will never throw ConcurrentModificationException, and guarantees to traverse elements as they existed upon construction of the iterator, and may (but is not guaranteed to) reflect any modifications subsequent to construction.

Specified by:
descendingKeySet in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Returns:
a reverse order navigable set view of the keys in this map
