           Summary: CaseInsensitiveMap performance optimization suggestion

          Platform: All

Hi,

I have written something similar until I found this class.  I plan to use this
instead.  When browsing the implementation I notice an opportunity to improve
performance of this class, and I'd like to make a suggestion.

1) Since this class works on keys of any type, and that only String (OK, maybe
StringBuffer) are meaningful when converting to lowercase, it is not necessary
to convert every key with key.toString().toLowerCase().  If the key is not of
String type, it should just return the object itself.
2) Often times, the same set of keys are used repeatedly, and since String
objects are immutable, it might help further optimize the repeating work of
converting the same key to lowercase by reusing already converted key objects of
String type by caching lowercase keys in an internal map.

I am referring to CaseInsensitiveMap.convertKey()

Thanks,

Rick
