Subject Re: [dbutils] CaseInsensitiveHashMap in BasicRowProcessor should extend LinkedHashMap
Date Sun, 18 Dec 2011 20:37:05 GMT
Hi Hasan,
I don't have a generic order for keys, my order is the same of the fields
in select list:
select <col1>, <col2>, ..., <coln> from ...
when the resultset of this query is mapped, values in the map are inserted
in this order <col1>, <col2>, ..., <coln>.
I'd like that map.keySet().iterator() let me iterate over values in that
order, i.e. insertion-order.
This is a custom order but I have to parse the query to get it. I think it
should be the order that a client would expect.
>From the LinkedHashMap javadoc:
"This implementation spares its clients from the unspecified, generally
chaotic ordering provided by
 (and Hashtable<>),
without incurring the increased cost associated with
