LruMap<K, V> class

An implementation of a Map which has a maximum size and uses a (Least Recently Used)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cache_algorithms#LRU algorithm to remove items from the Map when the maximumSize is reached and new items are added.

It is safe to access the keys and values collections without affecting the "used" ordering - as well as using forEach. Other types of access, including bracket, and putIfAbsent, promotes the key-value pair to the MRU position.

Properties

maximumSize int
Maximum size of the Map. If length exceeds this value at any time, n entries accessed the earliest are removed, where n is length - maximumSize.
read / write
entries Iterable<MapEntry<K, V>>
The map entries of this.
read-only, inherited
hashCode int
The hash code for this object. [...]
read-only, inherited
isEmpty bool
Returns true if there is no key/value pair in the map.
read-only, inherited
isNotEmpty bool
Returns true if there is at least one key/value pair in the map.
read-only, inherited
keys Iterable<K>
The keys of this. [...]

length int
The number of key/value pairs in the map.
