    public class HashSet<E>
    extends AbstractSet<E>
    implements Set<E>, Cloneable, Serializable
    
    This class implements the Set interface, backed by a hash table (actually a HashMap instance). It makes no guarantees as to the iteration order of the set; in particular, it does not guarantee that the order will remain constant over time. This class permits the null element.

    This class offers constant time performance for the basic operations (add, remove, contains and size), assuming the hash function disperses the elements properly among the buckets. Iterating over this set requires time proportional to the sum of the HashSet instance's size (the number of elements) plus the "capacity" of the backing HashMap instance (the number of buckets). Thus, it's very important not to set the initial capacity too high (or the load factor too low) if iteration performance is important.

    Note that this implementation is not synchronized. If multiple threads access a hash set concurrently, and at least one of the threads modifies the set, it must be synchronized externally. This is typically accomplished by synchronizing on some object that naturally encapsulates the set. If no such object exists, the set should be "wrapped" using the Collections.synchronizedSet method. This is best done at creation time, to prevent accidental unsynchronized access to the set:

       Set s = Collections.synchronizedSet(new HashSet(...));

    The iterators returned by this class's iterator method are fail-fast: if the set is modified at any time after the iterator is created, in any way except through the iterator's own remove method, the Iterator throws a ConcurrentModificationException. Thus, in the face of concurrent modification, the iterator fails quickly and cleanly, rather than risking arbitrary, non-deterministic behavior at an undetermined time in the future.

    Note that the fail-fast behavior of an iterator cannot be guaranteed as it is, generally speaking, impossible to make any hard guarantees in the presence of unsynchronized concurrent modification. Fail-fast iterators throw ConcurrentModificationException on a best-effort basis. Therefore, it would be wrong to write a program that depended on this exception for its correctness: the fail-fast behavior of iterators should be used only to detect bugs.

    This class is a member of the Java Collections Framework .

constructor:<init>() [NONE]

  • HashSet

    public HashSet()
    Constructs a new, empty set; the backing HashMap instance has default initial capacity (16) and load factor (0.75).

constructor:<init>(java.util.Collection) [NONE]

  • HashSet

    public HashSet​(Collection<? extends E> c)
    Constructs a new set containing the elements in the specified collection. The HashMap is created with default load factor (0.75) and an initial capacity sufficient to contain the elements in the specified collection.
    Parameters:
    c - the collection whose elements are to be placed into this set
    Throws:
    NullPointerException - if the specified collection is null

constructor:<init>(int,float) [NONE]

  • HashSet

    public HashSet​(int initialCapacity,
                   float loadFactor)
    Constructs a new, empty set; the backing HashMap instance has the specified initial capacity and the specified load factor.
    Parameters:
    initialCapacity - the initial capacity of the hash map
    loadFactor - the load factor of the hash map
    Throws:
    IllegalArgumentException - if the initial capacity is less than zero, or if the load factor is nonpositive

constructor:<init>(int) [NONE]

  • HashSet

    public HashSet​(int initialCapacity)
    Constructs a new, empty set; the backing HashMap instance has the specified initial capacity and default load factor (0.75).
    Parameters:
    initialCapacity - the initial capacity of the hash table
    Throws:
    IllegalArgumentException - if the initial capacity is less than zero

method:iterator() [NONE]

method:size() [NONE]

  • size

    public int size()
    Returns the number of elements in this set (its cardinality).
    Specified by:
    size in interface Collection<E>
    Specified by:
    size in interface Set<E>
    Specified by:
    size in class AbstractCollection<E>
    Returns:
    the number of elements in this set (its cardinality)

method:isEmpty() [NONE]

  • isEmpty

    public boolean isEmpty()
    Returns true if this set contains no elements.
    Specified by:
    isEmpty in interface Collection<E>
    Specified by:
    isEmpty in interface Set<E>
    Overrides:
    isEmpty in class AbstractCollection<E>
    Returns:
    true if this set contains no elements

method:contains(java.lang.Object) [NONE]

  • contains

    public boolean contains​(Object o)
    Returns true if this set contains the specified element. More formally, returns true if and only if this set contains an element e such that Objects.equals(o, e) .
    Specified by:
    contains in interface Collection<E>
    Specified by:
    contains in interface Set<E>
    Overrides:
    contains in class AbstractCollection<E>
    Parameters:
    o - element whose presence in this set is to be tested
    Returns:
    true if this set contains the specified element

method:add(E) [NONE]

  • add

    public boolean add​(E e)
    Adds the specified element to this set if it is not already present. More formally, adds the specified element e to this set if this set contains no element e2 such that Objects.equals(e, e2) . If this set already contains the element, the call leaves the set unchanged and returns false.
    Specified by:
    add in interface Collection<E>
    Specified by:
    add in interface Set<E>
    Overrides:
    add in class AbstractCollection<E>
    Parameters:
    e - element to be added to this set
    Returns:
    true if this set did not already contain the specified element

method:remove(java.lang.Object) [NONE]

  • remove

    public boolean remove​(Object o)
    Removes the specified element from this set if it is present. More formally, removes an element e such that Objects.equals(o, e) , if this set contains such an element. Returns true if this set contained the element (or equivalently, if this set changed as a result of the call). (This set will not contain the element once the call returns.)
    Specified by:
    remove in interface Collection<E>
    Specified by:
    remove in interface Set<E>
    Overrides:
    remove in class AbstractCollection<E>
    Parameters:
    o - object to be removed from this set, if present
    Returns:
    true if the set contained the specified element

method:clear() [NONE]

  • clear

    public void clear()
    Removes all of the elements from this set. The set will be empty after this call returns.
    Specified by:
    clear in interface Collection<E>
    Specified by:
    clear in interface Set<E>
    Overrides:
    clear in class AbstractCollection<E>

method:clone() [NONE]

  • clone

    public Object clone()
    Returns a shallow copy of this HashSet instance: the elements themselves are not cloned.
    Overrides:
    clone in class Object

    a shallow copy of this set
