Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-238) [lang] Add equals(type[]) to NumberUtils
Date Mon, 01 Jan 2007 11:55:27 GMT

    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-238?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12461614
] 

Stephen Colebourne commented on LANG-238:
-----------------------------------------

This newly defined method seems a little unusual - is it really a generic use case? How often
do you need to test that all elements in an array are the same?

A more general related method might be:
containsOnly(arrayToTest, arrayOfPermittedValues)

> It would be useful to add an equals() method like the current min and max
> methods which take an array type and determine if all the values are equal.
> I have found myself in need of this often. I have to retrieve objects from
> multiple data sources in parallel to build an array of complex object. To ensure
> validity, I always compare that my sub-retrievals returned the same number of
> objects as expected.
