Package org.apache.groovy.util.concurrentlinkedhashmap

Package org.apache.groovy.util.concurrentlinkedhashmap Description

This package contains an implementation of a bounded ConcurrentMap data structure.

Weigher is a simple interface for determining how many units of capacity an entry consumes. Depending on which concrete Weigher class is used, an entry may consume a different amount of space within the cache. The Weighers class provides utility methods for obtaining the most common kinds of implementations.

org.apache.groovy.util.concurrentlinkedhashmap.EvictionListener provides the ability to be notified when an entry is evicted from the map. An eviction occurs when the entry was automatically removed due to the map exceeding a capacity threshold. It is not called when an entry was explicitly removed.

The org.apache.groovy.util.concurrentlinkedhashmap.ConcurrentLinkedHashMap class supplies an efficient, scalable, thread-safe, bounded map. As with the Java Collections Framework the "Concurrent" prefix is used to indicate that the map is not governed by a single exclusion lock.
