Class FrequencySortedSet<E>

Object
AbstractCollection<E>
AbstractSet<E>
FrequencySortedSet<E>
Type Parameters:
E - the type of elements in the set.
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Iterable<E>, Collection<E>, Comparator<E>, Set<E>, Sorted­Set<E>

public class FrequencySortedSet<E> extends AbstractSet<E> implements SortedSet<E>, Comparator<E>, Serializable
A set with elements ordered by the amount of time they were added. By default, less frequently added elements are first and most frequently added elements are last. If some elements were added the same amount of time, then the iterator will traverse them in their insertion order.

An optional boolean argument in the constructor allows the construction of set in reversed order (most frequently added elements first, less frequently added last). This is similar but not identical to creating a default Frequency­Sorted­Set and iterating through it in reverse order. The difference is that elements added the same amount of time will still be traversed in their insertion order.

This class is not thread-safe. Synchronizations (if wanted) are caller responsibility.

    • first

      public E first() throws NoSuchElementException
      Returns the first element in this set.
      • For sets created with the default order, this is the less frequently added element. If more than one element were added with the same frequency, this is the first one that has been added to this set at this frequency.
      • For sets created with the reverse order, this is the most frequently added element. If more than one element were added with the same frequency, this is the first one that has been added to this set at this frequency.
      Specified by:
      first in interface Sorted­Set<E>
      Throws:
      No­Such­Element­Exception - if this set is empty.
    • last

      public E last() throws NoSuchElementException
      Returns the last element in this set.
      • For sets created with the default order, this is the most frequently added element. If more than one element were added with the same frequency, this is the last one that has been added to this set at this frequency.
      • For sets created with the reverse order, this is the less frequently added element. If more than one element were added with the same frequency, this is the last one that has been added to this set at this frequency.
      Specified by:
      last in interface Sorted­Set<E>
      Throws:
      No­Such­Element­Exception - if this set is empty.
    • comparator

      public final Comparator<E> comparator()
      Returns the comparator used to order the elements in this set. For a Frequency­Sorted­Set, the comparator is always this.

      This method is final because the Frequency­Sorted­Set implementation makes assumptions on the comparator that would not hold if this method were overridden.

      Specified by:
      comparator in interface Sorted­Set<E>
    • compare

      public final int compare(E o1, E o2)
      Compares the specified elements for frequency. For Frequency­Sorted­Set with default ordering, this method returns a positive number if o1 has been added more frequently to this set than o2, a negative number if o1 has been added less frequently than o2, and 0 otherwise. For Frequency­Sorted­Set with reverse ordering, this is the converse.

      This method is final because the Frequency­Sorted­Set implementation makes assumptions on the comparator that would not hold if this method were overridden.

      Specified by:
      compare in interface Comparator<E>
    • frequency

      public int frequency(E element)
      Returns the frequency of the specified element in this set.
      Parameters:
      element - the element whose frequency is to be obtained.
      Returns:
      the frequency of the given element, or 0 if it does not occur in this set.
    • frequencies

      public int[] frequencies()
      Returns the frequency of all elements in this set, in iteration order.
      Returns:
      the frequency of all elements in this set.
    • toArray

      public Object[] toArray()
      Returns the content of this set as an array.
      Specified by:
      to­Array in interface Collection<E>
      Specified by:
      to­Array in interface Set<E>
      Overrides:
      to­Array in class Abstract­Collection<E>
    • toArray

      public <T> T[] toArray(T[] array)
      Returns the content of this set as an array.
      Specified by:
      to­Array in interface Collection<E>
      Specified by:
      to­Array in interface Set<E>
      Overrides:
      to­Array in class Abstract­Collection<E>
      Type Parameters:
      T - the type of the array elements.
      Parameters:
      array - the array where to copy the elements.
      Returns:
      the elements in the given array, or in a new array if the given array does not have a sufficient capacity.
