Class LinkedHashSet<E>

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Cloneable, Iterable<E>, Collection<E>, Set<E>, SCO<LinkedHashSet<E>>, SCOCollection<LinkedHashSet<E>,​E>, SCOContainer<LinkedHashSet<E>>, BackedSCO

    public class LinkedHashSet<E>
    extends LinkedHashSet<E>
    implements BackedSCO
    A mutable second-class LinkedHashSet object. This class extends LinkedHashSet, using that class to contain the current objects, and the backing SetStore to be the interface to the datastore. A "backing store" is not present for datastores that dont use DatastoreClass, or if the container is serialised or non-persistent.

    Modes of Operation

    The user can operate the list in 2 modes. The cached mode will use an internal cache of the elements (in the "delegate") reading them at the first opportunity and then using the cache thereafter. The non-cached mode will just go direct to the "backing store" each call.

    Mutators

    When the "backing store" is present any updates are passed direct to the datastore as well as to the "delegate". If the "backing store" isn't present the changes are made to the "delegate" only.

    Accessors

    When any accessor method is invoked, it typically checks whether the container has been loaded from its "backing store" (where present) and does this as necessary. Some methods (size()) just check if everything is loaded and use the delegate if possible, otherwise going direct to the datastore.

        public void initialise​(LinkedHashSet<E> newValue,
                               Object oldValue)
        Description copied from interface: SCO
        Method to initialise the SCO for use, where replacing an old value with a new value such as when calling a setter field passing in a new value.

      • writeReplace

        protected Object writeReplace()
                               throws ObjectStreamException
        The writeReplace method is called when ObjectOutputStream is preparing to write the object to the stream. The ObjectOutputStream checks whether the class defines the writeReplace method. If the method is defined, the writeReplace method is called to allow the object to designate its replacement in the stream. The object returned should be either of the same type as the object passed in or an object that when read and resolved will result in an object of a type that is compatible with all references to the object.
        Overrides:
        writeReplace in class LinkedHashSet<E>
        Returns:
        the replaced object
        Throws:
        ObjectStreamException - if an error occurs
