<a name="Introduction"></a>
<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.
<a name="Dependencies"></a>
<h3>2. DEPENDENCIES</h3>
<p>The <em>Collections</em> package is dependent upon the following external
components for development and use:</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se">Java Development Kit</a>
(Version 1.2 or later)</li>
<li><a href="http://www.junit.org">JUnit Testing Framework</a>
(Version 3.8.1 or later) - for unit tests only, not required
for deployment</li>
</ul>
<a name="Release Info"></a>
<h3>3. RELEASE INFO</h3>
<p>Current Release:

<p>Planned Next Release: ?</p>
<a name="Committers"></a>
<h3>4. COMMITTERS</h3>
<p>The following individuals are the primary developers and maintainers of this
component. Developers who plan to use <em>Collections</em> in their own
projects are encouraged to collaborate on the future development of this
component to ensure that it continues to meet a variety of needs.</p>

<h3>5. ACTION ITEMS</h3>
<p>Want to help? Here's some "to do" items the team has identified.</p>
<table border="1">
<tr>
<th width="80%">Action Item</th>
<th width="20%">Volunteer</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><strong>Additional Contributions</strong>. Other collection
or collection-related classes or decorators.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><strong>MultiMap ideas</strong>. Updates to MultiMap, maybe based on
<a href="http://www.innig.org/util/innig-util/build/javadoc">this library</a>.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><strong>Additional Documentation</strong>. Create simple
User's Guide, examples, or other documentation for this package.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<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>
</tr>
<tr>
<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>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><strong>LoopingListIterator</strong>. A ListIterator similar to LoopingIterator</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><strong>Standard Constructors</strong>. All concrete Collection and
Map implementations should have the standard copy and no-argument
constructors.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><strong>Additional Unit Tests</strong>. Create generic unit tests
for SortedSet and SortedMap.</td>
<td align="center">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
