<h3>1. INTRODUCTION</h3>
<p>The <em>Collections</em> package contains a set of Java classes that
extend or augment the Java Collections Framework. This includes new interfaces
and new implementations together with supporting utility classes.
<p>In addition to the main commons-collections jar, a testframework jar file is also produced.

<td><strong>Additional Contributions</strong>. Other collection
or collection-related classes or decorators.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td><strong>MultiMap ideas</strong>. Updates to MultiMap, maybe based on
<a href="">this library</a>.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td><strong>Additional Documentation</strong>. Create simple
User's Guide, examples, or other documentation for this package.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td><strong>Serializable Collections</strong>. All of the concrete
Collection and Map implementations should be properly Serializable
across all versions of the JDK. Also, decorators should be
Serializable if the underlying instance is.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td><strong>Fail-Fast Iterators</strong>. All concrete Collection and
Map implementations that can have fail-fast iterators should have
them. Some classes, like StaticBucketMap, cannot possibly have
fail-fast iterators, but otherwise everything else should.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td><strong>LoopingListIterator</strong>. A ListIterator similar to LoopingIterator</td>
<td><strong>Standard Constructors</strong>. All concrete Collection and
Map implementations should have the standard copy and no-argument
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
<td><strong>Additional Unit Tests</strong>. Create generic unit tests
for SortedSet and SortedMap.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
