The problem is that two TimeInterval's could be the same (with .equals)
although they are not identical (same ID).
And now I need to decide in my application, wether they are identical
Assume the following (all specified TI's have different ID's):


assertEquals(3, set1.size());

This can fail (e.g. timeInterval2.equals(timeInterval3) == true then
size == 2), because the set relies on equal.
Now I thought if I put the TimeTnterval's in a map, which has the ID as
keys this could solve the problem.
But now the problem was that not all TimeInterval are persistent,
because most of them I need for some calculation and not for persistence....

Is there another approach?

Thank you,
Peter Karich.
