Class HashTree

java.lang.Object
org.apache.jorphan.collections.HashTree
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Map<Object,HashTree>
Direct Known Subclasses:
ListedHashTree

public class HashTree extends Object implements Serializable, Map<Object,HashTree>, Cloneable
This class is used to create a tree structure of objects. Each element in the tree is also a key to the next node down in the tree. It provides many ways to add objects and branches, as well as many ways to retrieve.

HashTree implements the Map interface for convenience reasons. The main difference between a Map and a HashTree is that the HashTree organizes the data into a recursive tree structure, and provides the means to manipulate that structure.

Of special interest is the traverse(HashTreeTraverser) method, which provides an expedient way to traverse any HashTree by implementing the HashTreeTraverser interface in order to perform some operation on the tree, or to extract information from the tree.

If the HashTree represented a file system, this would be like getting a list of all the files in a directory specified by the treePath, relative from the current directory.
      Parameters:
      treePath - Array of keys used to recurse into HashTree structure
      Returns:
      Set of all keys found in end HashTree
    • list

      public Collection<?> list(Collection<?> treePath)
      Recurses down into the HashTree structure using each subsequent key in the List of keys, and returns the Set of keys of the HashTree object at the end of the recursion. If the HashTree represented a file system, this would be like getting a list of all the files in a directory specified by the treePath, relative from the current directory.
      Parameters:
      treePath - List of keys used to recurse into HashTree structure
      Returns:
      Set of all keys found in end HashTree
    • replaceKey

      public void replaceKey(Object currentKey, Object newKey)
      Finds the given current key, and replaces it with the given new key. Any tree structure found under the original key is moved to the new key.
      Parameters:
      currentKey - name of the key to be replaced
      newKey - name of the new key
    • getArray

      public Object[] getArray()
      Gets an array of all keys in the current HashTree node. If the HashTree represented a file system, this would be like getting an array of all the files in the current folder.
      Returns:
      array of all keys in this HashTree.
    • getArray

      public Object[] getArray(Object key)
      Gets an array of all keys in the HashTree mapped to the given key of the current HashTree object (in other words, one level down). If the HashTree represented a file system, this would like getting a list of all files in a sub-directory (of the current directory) specified by the key argument.
      Parameters:
      key - key used to find HashTree to get list of
      Returns:
      array of all keys in found HashTree
    • getArray

      public Object[] getArray(Object[] treePath)
      Recurses down into the HashTree structure using each subsequent key in the array of keys, and returns an array of keys of the HashTree object at the end of the recursion. If the HashTree represented a file system, this would be like getting a list of all the files in a directory specified by the treePath, relative from the current directory.
      Parameters:
      treePath - array of keys used to recurse into HashTree structure
      Returns:
      array of all keys found in end HashTree
    • getArray

      public Object[] getArray(Collection<?> treePath)
      Recurses down into the HashTree structure using each subsequent key in the treePath argument, and returns an array of keys of the HashTree object at the end of the recursion. If the HashTree represented a file system, this would be like getting a list of all the files in a directory specified by the treePath, relative from the current directory.
      Parameters:
      treePath - list of keys used to recurse into HashTree structure
      Returns:
      array of all keys found in end HashTree
    • getTreePath

      protected HashTree getTreePath(Collection<?> treePath)
    • hashCode

      public int hashCode()
      Returns a hashcode for this HashTree.

    • equals

      public boolean equals(Object o)
      Compares all objects in the tree and verifies that the two trees contain the same objects at the same tree levels. Returns true if they do, false otherwise.
      Specified by:
      equals in interface Map<Object,HashTree>
      Overrides:
      equals in class Object
      Parameters:
      o - Object to be compared against

    • search

      public HashTree search(Object key)
      Searches the HashTree structure for the given key. If it finds the key, it returns the HashTree mapped to the key. If it finds nothing, it returns null.
      Parameters:
      key - Key to search for
      Returns:
      HashTree mapped to key, if found, otherwise null
    • size
