Description: The Apache Commons Collections is a project used to develop and maintain a collection of classes based on and inspired by the Java Development Kit (JDK) collection framework. This group of collections includes features such as:
  • Bag interfaces for collections that have a number of copies of each object.
  • BidiMap interfaces for maps that can be looked up from value to key and key to value.
  • MapIterator interfaces to provide simple and quick iteration over maps.
  • Transforming decorators that alter each object as it is added to the collection.
  • Composite collections that make multiple collections look like one.
  • Ordered maps and sets that retain the order elements are added in, including a Least Recently Used (LRU) based map.
  • Reference maps that allow keys and/or values to be garbage collected under close control.
  • Utilities to test or create typical set-theory properties of collections such as union, intersection, and closure.

This technology does not utilize a database.
