public class ConcurrentSkipListMap<K,V>
extends AbstractMap<K,V>
implements ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V>, Cloneable, Serializable

A scalable concurrent ConcurrentNavigableMap implementation. The map is sorted according to the natural ordering of its keys, or by a Comparator provided at map creation time, depending on which constructor is used.

This class implements a concurrent variant of SkipLists providing expected average log(n) time cost for the containsKey, get, put and remove operations and their variants. Insertion, removal, update, and access operations safely execute concurrently by multiple threads. Iterators are weakly consistent, returning elements reflecting the state of the map at some point at or since the creation of the iterator. They do not throw ConcurrentModificationException, and may proceed concurrently with other operations. Ascending key ordered views and their iterators are faster than descending ones.

All Map.Entry pairs returned by methods in this class and its views represent snapshots of mappings at the time they were produced. They do not support the Entry.setValue method. (Note however that it is possible to change mappings in the associated map using put, putIfAbsent, or replace, depending on exactly which effect you need.)

Beware that, unlike in most collections, the size method is not a constant-time operation. Because of the asynchronous nature of these maps, determining the current number of elements requires a traversal of the elements. Additionally, the bulk operations putAll, equals, and clear are not guaranteed to be performed atomically. For example, an iterator operating concurrently with a putAll operation might view only some of the added elements.

This class and its views and iterators implement all of the optional methods of the Map and Iterator interfaces. Like most other concurrent collections, this class does not permit the use of null keys or values because some null return values cannot be reliably distinguished from the absence of elements.

This class is a member of the Java Collections Framework.

Constructor Detail

ConcurrentSkipListMap

public ConcurrentSkipListMap()
Constructs a new, empty map, sorted according to the natural ordering of the keys.


ConcurrentSkipListMap

public ConcurrentSkipListMap(Comparator<? super K> comparator)
Constructs a new, empty map, sorted according to the specified comparator.

Parameters:
comparator - the comparator that will be used to order this map. If null, the natural ordering of the keys will be used.

public ConcurrentSkipListMap(Map<? extends K,? extends V> m)
Constructs a new map containing the same mappings as the given map, sorted according to the natural ordering of the keys.

Parameters:
m - the map whose mappings are to be placed in this map
Throws:

NullPointerException - if the specified map or any of its keys or values are null

ConcurrentSkipListMap

public ConcurrentSkipListMap(SortedMap<K,? extends V> m)
Constructs a new map containing the same mappings and using the same ordering as the specified sorted map.

Parameters:
m - the sorted map whose mappings are to be placed in this map, and whose comparator is to be used to sort this map
Throws:
NullPointerException - if the specified sorted map or any of its keys or values are null
Method Detail

clone

public ConcurrentSkipListMap<K,V> clone()
Returns a shallow copy of this ConcurrentSkipListMap instance. (The keys and values themselves are not cloned.)

Overrides:
clone in class AbstractMap<K,V>
Returns:
a shallow copy of this map

containsKey

public boolean containsKey(Object key)
Returns true if this map contains a mapping for the specified key.

Specified by:
containsKey in interface Map<K,V>
Overrides:
containsKey in class AbstractMap<K,V>
Parameters:
key - key whose presence in this map is to be tested
Returns:
true if this map contains a mapping for the specified key
Throws:
ClassCastException - if the specified key cannot be compared with the keys currently in the map
NullPointerException - if the specified key is null

get

public V get(Object key)
Returns the value to which the specified key is mapped, or null if this map contains no mapping for the key.

More formally, if this map contains a mapping from a key k to a value v such that key compares equal to k according to the map's ordering, then this method returns v; otherwise it returns null. (There can be at most one such mapping.)

Specified by:
get in interface Map<K,V>
Overrides:
get in class AbstractMap<K,V>
Parameters:
key - the key whose associated value is to be returned
Returns:
the value to which the specified key is mapped, or null if this map contains no mapping for the key
Throws:
ClassCastException - if the specified key cannot be compared with the keys currently in the map
NullPointerException - if the specified key is null

put

public V put(K key,
             V value)
Associates the specified value with the specified key in this map. If the map previously contained a mapping for the key, the old value is replaced.

Specified by:
put in interface Map<K,V>
Overrides:
put in class AbstractMap<K,V>
Parameters:
key - key with which the specified value is to be associated
value - value to be associated with the specified key
Returns:
the previous value associated with the specified key, or null if there was no mapping for the key
Throws:
ClassCastException - if the specified key cannot be compared with the keys currently in the map
NullPointerException - if the specified key or value is null

remove

public V remove(Object key)
Removes the mapping for the specified key from this map if present.

Specified by:
remove in interface Map<K,V>
Overrides:
remove in class AbstractMap<K,V>
Parameters:
key - key for which mapping should be removed
Returns:
the previous value associated with the specified key, or null if there was no mapping for the key
Throws:
ClassCastException - if the specified key cannot be compared with the keys currently in the map
NullPointerException - if the specified key is null

containsValue

public boolean containsValue(Object value)
Returns true if this map maps one or more keys to the specified value. This operation requires time linear in the map size.

Specified by:
containsValue in interface Map<K,V>
Overrides:
containsValue in class AbstractMap<K,V>
Parameters:
value - value whose presence in this map is to be tested
Returns:
true if a mapping to value exists; false otherwise
Throws:
NullPointerException - if the specified value is null

size

public int size()
Returns the number of key-value mappings in this map. If this map contains more than Integer.MAX_VALUE elements, it returns Integer.MAX_VALUE.

Beware that, unlike in most collections, this method is NOT a constant-time operation. Because of the asynchronous nature of these maps, determining the current number of elements requires traversing them all to count them. Additionally, it is possible for the size to change during execution of this method, in which case the returned result will be inaccurate. Thus, this method is typically not very useful in concurrent applications.

Specified by:
size in interface Map<K,V>
Overrides:
size in class AbstractMap<K,V>
Returns:
the number of elements in this map

isEmpty

public boolean isEmpty()
Returns true if this map contains no key-value mappings.

Specified by:
isEmpty in interface Map<K,V>
Overrides:
isEmpty in class AbstractMap<K,V>
Returns:
true if this map contains no key-value mappings

clear

public void clear()
Removes all of the mappings from this map.

Specified by:
clear in interface Map<K,V>
Overrides:
clear in class AbstractMap<K,V>

keySet

public NavigableSet<K> keySet()
Returns a NavigableSet view of the keys contained in this map. The set's iterator returns the keys in ascending order. The set is backed by the map, so changes to the map are reflected in the set, and vice-versa. The set supports element removal, which removes the corresponding mapping from the map, via the Iterator.remove, Set.remove, removeAll, retainAll, and clear operations. It does not support the add or addAll operations.

The view's iterator is a "weakly consistent" iterator that will never throw ConcurrentModificationException, and guarantees to traverse elements as they existed upon construction of the iterator, and may (but is not guaranteed to) reflect any modifications subsequent to construction.

This method is equivalent to method navigableKeySet.

Specified by:
keySet in interface ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V>
Specified by:
keySet in interface Map<K,V>
Specified by:
keySet in interface SortedMap<K,V>

Specified by:
navigableKeySet in interface NavigableMap<K,V>

a navigable set view of the keys in this map

values

public Collection<V> values()
Returns a Collection view of the values contained in this map. The collection's iterator returns the values in ascending order of the corresponding keys. The collection is backed by the map, so changes to the map are reflected in the collection, and vice-versa. The collection supports element removal, which removes the corresponding mapping from the map, via the Iterator.remove, Collection.remove, removeAll, retainAll and clear operations. It does not support the add or addAll operations.

The view's iterator is a "weakly consistent" iterator that will never throw ConcurrentModificationException, and guarantees to traverse elements as they existed upon construction of the iterator, and may (but is not guaranteed to) reflect any modifications subsequent to construction.

Overrides:
values in class AbstractMap<K,V>

a collection view of the values contained in this map

entrySet

public Set<Map.Entry<K,V>> entrySet()
Returns a Set view of the mappings contained in this map. The set's iterator returns the entries in ascending key order.

Specified by:
entrySet in interface Map<K,V>
Specified by:
entrySet in interface SortedMap<K,V>
Specified by:
entrySet in class AbstractMap<K,V>
Returns:
a set view of the mappings contained in this map, sorted in ascending key order

descendingMap

public ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V> descendingMap()
Description copied from interface: ConcurrentNavigableMap
Returns a reverse order view of the mappings contained in this map. The descending map is backed by this map, so changes to the map are reflected in the descending map, and vice-versa.

The returned map has an ordering equivalent to Collections.reverseOrder(comparator()). The expression m.descendingMap().descendingMap() returns a view of m essentially equivalent to m.

Specified by:
descendingMap in interface ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V>
Specified by:
descendingMap in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Returns:
a reverse order view of this map

Returns:
a reverse order navigable set view of the keys in this map

equals

public boolean equals(Object o)
Compares the specified object with this map for equality. Returns true if the given object is also a map and the two maps represent the same mappings. More formally, two maps m1 and m2 represent the same mappings if m1.entrySet().equals(m2.entrySet()). This operation may return misleading results if either map is concurrently modified during execution of this method.

Specified by:
equals in interface Map<K,V>
Overrides:
equals in class AbstractMap<K,V>
Parameters:
o - object to be compared for equality with this map
Returns:
true if the specified object is equal to this map

putIfAbsent

public V putIfAbsent(K key,
                     V value)

   if (map.containsKey(key) && map.get(key).equals(value)) {
       map.remove(key);
       return true;
   } else return false;
except that the action is performed atomically.

Specified by:

                       V newValue)

The returned map is backed by this map, so changes in the returned map are reflected in this map, and vice-versa. The returned map supports all optional map operations that this map supports.

The returned map will throw an IllegalArgumentException on an attempt to insert a key outside its range.

Equivalent to subMap(fromKey, true, toKey, false).

Specified by:
subMap in interface ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V>
Specified by:
subMap in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Specified by:
subMap in interface SortedMap<K,V>
Parameters:
fromKey - low endpoint (inclusive) of the keys in the returned map
toKey - high endpoint (exclusive) of the keys in the returned map
Returns:
a view of the portion of this map whose keys range from fromKey, inclusive, to toKey, exclusive
Throws:
ClassCastException - if fromKey and toKey cannot be compared to one another using this map's comparator (or, if the map has no comparator, using natural ordering). Implementations may, but are not required to, throw this exception if fromKey or toKey cannot be compared to keys currently in the map.
NullPointerException - if fromKey or toKey is null
IllegalArgumentException - if fromKey is greater than toKey; or if this map itself has a restricted range, and fromKey or toKey lies outside the bounds of the range

headMap

public ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V> headMap(K toKey)
Description copied from interface: NavigableMap
Returns a view of the portion of this map whose keys are strictly less than toKey. The returned map is backed by this map, so changes in the returned map are reflected in this map, and vice-versa. The returned map supports all optional map operations that this map supports.

The returned map will throw an IllegalArgumentException on an attempt to insert a key outside its range.

Equivalent to headMap(toKey, false).

Specified by:
headMap in interface ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V>
Specified by:
headMap in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Specified by:
headMap in interface SortedMap<K,V>
Parameters:
toKey - high endpoint (exclusive) of the keys in the returned map
Returns:
a view of the portion of this map whose keys are strictly less than toKey
Throws:
ClassCastException - if toKey is not compatible with this map's comparator (or, if the map has no comparator, if toKey does not implement Comparable). Implementations may, but are not required to, throw this exception if toKey cannot be compared to keys currently in the map.
NullPointerException - if toKey is null
IllegalArgumentException - if this map itself has a restricted range, and toKey lies outside the bounds of the range

tailMap

public ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V> tailMap(K fromKey)
Description copied from interface: NavigableMap
Returns a view of the portion of this map whose keys are greater than or equal to fromKey. The returned map is backed by this map, so changes in the returned map are reflected in this map, and vice-versa. The returned map supports all optional map operations that this map supports.

The returned map will throw an IllegalArgumentException on an attempt to insert a key outside its range.

Equivalent to tailMap(fromKey, true).

Specified by:
tailMap in interface ConcurrentNavigableMap<K,V>
Specified by:
tailMap in interface NavigableMap<K,V>
Specified by:
tailMap in interface SortedMap<K,V>
Parameters:
fromKey - low endpoint (inclusive) of the keys in the returned map
Returns:
a view of the portion of this map whose keys are greater than or equal to fromKey
Throws:
ClassCastException - if fromKey is not compatible with this map's comparator (or, if the map has no comparator, if fromKey does not implement Comparable). Implementations may, but are not required to, throw this exception if fromKey cannot be compared to keys currently in the map.
NullPointerException - if fromKey is null
IllegalArgumentException - if this map itself has a restricted range, and fromKey lies outside the bounds of the range
