public interface ByteCollection
extends java.util.Collection<java.lang.Byte>, ByteIterable
A type-specific Collection; provides some additional methods that use polymorphism to avoid (un)boxing.

Additionally, this class defines strengthens (again) iterator().

This interface specifies reference equality semantics (members will be compared equal with == instead of equals), which may result in breaks in contract if attempted to be used with non reference-equality semantics based Collections. For example, a aReferenceCollection.equals(aObjectCollection) may return different a different result then aObjectCollection.equals(aReferenceCollection), in violation of equals's contract requiring it being symmetric.

  • Method Details

    • iterator

      ByteIterator iterator()
      Returns a type-specific iterator on the elements of this collection.
      Specified by:
      iterator in interface ByteIterable
      Specified by:
      iterator in interface java.util.Collection<java.lang.Byte>
      Specified by:
      iterator in interface java.lang.Iterable<java.lang.Byte>
      Returns:
      a type-specific iterator on the elements of this collection.
      See Also:
      Iterable.iterator()
      API Notes:
      This specification strengthens the one given in Iterable.iterator(), which was already strengthened in the corresponding type-specific class, but was weakened by the fact that this interface extends Collection.
    • intIterator

      default IntIterator intIterator()
      Returns a widened primitive iterator on the elements of this collection.

      This method is provided for the purpose of APIs that expect only the JDK's primitive iterators, of which there are only int, long, and double.

      Specified by:
      intIterator in interface ByteIterable
      Returns:
      a widened primitive iterator on the elements of this collection.
      Since:
      8.5.0
    • spliterator

      default ByteSpliterator spliterator()
      Returns a type-specific spliterator on the elements of this collection.

      See Collection.spliterator() for more documentation on the requirements of the returned spliterator.

      Specified by:
      spliterator in interface ByteIterable
      Specified by:
      spliterator in interface java.util.Collection<java.lang.Byte>
      Specified by:
      spliterator in interface java.lang.Iterable<java.lang.Byte>
      Returns:
      a type-specific spliterator on the elements of this collection.
      Since:
      8.5.0
      API Notes:
      This specification strengthens the one given in Collection.spliterator().

      Also, this is generally the only spliterator method subclasses should override.

      Implementation Specification:
      The default implementation returns a late-binding spliterator (see Spliterator for documentation on what binding policies mean) that wraps this instance's type specific iterator().

      Additionally, it reports Spliterator.SIZED

      Implementation Notes:
      As this default implementation wraps the iterator, and Iterator is an inherently linear API, the returned spliterator will yield limited performance gains when run in parallel contexts, as the returned spliterator's trySplit() will have linear runtime.
    • intSpliterator

      default IntSpliterator intSpliterator()
      Returns widened primitive spliterator on the elements of this collection.

      This method is provided for the purpose of APIs that expect only the JDK's primitive spliterators, of which there are only int, long, and double.

      Specified by:
      intSpliterator in interface ByteIterable
      Returns:
      a widened primitive spliterator on the elements of this collection.
      Since:
      8.5.0
    • add

      boolean add​(byte key)
      Ensures that this collection contains the specified element (optional operation).
      See Also:
      Collection.add(Object)
    • contains

      boolean contains​(byte key)
      Returns true if this collection contains the specified element.
      See Also:
      Collection.contains(Object)
    • rem

      boolean rem​(byte key)
      Removes a single instance of the specified element from this collection, if it is present (optional operation).

      Note that this method should be called remove(), but the clash with the similarly named index-based method in the List interface forces us to use a distinguished name. For simplicity, the set interfaces reinstates remove().

      Collection.remove(Object)

      Deprecated.
      Please use toArray() instead—this method is redundant and will be removed in the future.
      Returns a primitive type array containing the items of this collection.

      Note that, contrarily to Collection.toArray(Object[]), this methods just writes all elements of this collection: no special value will be added after the last one.

      boolean containsAll​(ByteCollection c)
      Checks whether this collection contains all elements from the given type-specific collection.
      Parameters:
      c - a type-specific collection.

      true if any elements were removed.
      See Also:
      Collection.removeIf(java.util.function.Predicate)
      API Notes:
      Implementing classes should generally override this method, and take the default implementation of the other overloads which will delegate to this method (after proper conversions).
    • removeIf

      default boolean removeIf​(java.util.function.IntPredicate filter)
      Remove from this collection all elements which satisfy the given predicate.
      Parameters:
