Class SimpleHashtable

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.tomcat.util.collections.SimpleHashtable
All Implemented Interfaces:
java.util.Enumeration

Deprecated.

public final class SimpleHashtable
extends java.lang.Object
implements java.util.Enumeration

This class implements a special purpose hashtable. It works like a normal java.util.Hashtable except that:

  1. Keys to "get" are strings which are known to be interned, so that "==" is used instead of "String.equals". (Interning could be document-relative instead of global.)
  2. It's not synchronized, since it's to be used only by one thread at a time.
  3. The keys () enumerator allocates no memory, with live updates to the data disallowed.
  4. It's got fewer bells and whistles: fixed threshold and load factor, no JDK 1.2 collection support, only keys can be enumerated, things can't be removed, simpler inheritance; more.

The overall result is that it's less expensive to use these in performance-critical locations, in terms both of CPU and memory, than java.util.Hashtable instances. In this package it makes a significant difference when normalizing attributes, which is done for each start-element construct.


Constructor Summary
SimpleHashtable()
          Deprecated. Constructs a new, empty hashtable with a default capacity.
SimpleHashtable(int initialCapacity)
          Deprecated. Constructs a new, empty hashtable with the specified initial capacity.
 
Method Summary
 void clear()
          Deprecated.  
 java.lang.Object get(java.lang.String key)
          Deprecated. Returns the value to which the specified key is mapped in this hashtable ... the key isn't necessarily interned, though.
 java.lang.Object getInterned(java.lang.String key)
          Deprecated. Returns the value to which the specified key is mapped in this hashtable.
 boolean hasMoreElements()
          Deprecated. Used to view this as an enumeration; returns true if there are more keys to be enumerated.
 java.util.Enumeration keys()
          Deprecated. Returns an enumeration of the keys in this hashtable.
 java.lang.Object nextElement()
          Deprecated. Used to view this as an enumeration; returns the next key in the enumeration.
 java.lang.Object put(java.lang.Object key, java.lang.Object value)
          Deprecated. Maps the specified key to the specified value in this hashtable.
 java.lang.Object remove(java.lang.Object key)
          Deprecated.  
 int size()
          Deprecated. Returns the number of keys in this hashtable.

Constructor Detail

SimpleHashtable

public SimpleHashtable(int initialCapacity)
Deprecated. 
Constructs a new, empty hashtable with the specified initial capacity.

Parameters:
initialCapacity - the initial capacity of the hashtable.

SimpleHashtable

public SimpleHashtable()
Deprecated. 
Constructs a new, empty hashtable with a default capacity.

Method Detail

clear

public void clear()
Deprecated. 

size

public int size()
Deprecated. 
Returns the number of keys in this hashtable.

Returns:
the number of keys in this hashtable.

keys

public java.util.Enumeration keys()
Deprecated. 
Returns an enumeration of the keys in this hashtable.

Returns:
an enumeration of the keys in this hashtable.

Enumeration

hasMoreElements

public boolean hasMoreElements()
Deprecated. 
Used to view this as an enumeration; returns true if there are more keys to be enumerated.

Specified by:
hasMoreElements in interface java.util.Enumeration

nextElement

public java.lang.Object nextElement()
Deprecated. 
Used to view this as an enumeration; returns the next key in the enumeration.

Specified by:
nextElement in interface java.util.Enumeration

getInterned

public java.lang.Object getInterned(java.lang.String key)
Deprecated. 
Returns the value to which the specified key is mapped in this hashtable.


get

public java.lang.Object get(java.lang.String key)
Deprecated. 
Returns the value to which the specified key is mapped in this hashtable ... the key isn't necessarily interned, though.


put

public java.lang.Object put(java.lang.Object key,
                            java.lang.Object value)
Deprecated. 
Maps the specified key to the specified value in this hashtable. Neither the key nor the value can be null.

The value can be retrieved by calling the get method with a key that is equal to the original key.


remove

public java.lang.Object remove(java.lang.Object key)
Deprecated.
