John Hunsley updated COLLECTIONS-263:
-------------------------------------

    Attachment: CollectionFilter.java

Hi, 

here's the code I have for a class which does the described functionality.

> I purpose extending the MultiHashMap to create an object filter which will filter a given
collection of objects by a given field value.
> For example:
> I have a collection of 5 objects of class X. X has an int field i as shown below:
> x1 i = 1
> x2 i = 2
> x3 i = 2
> x4 i = 5
> x5 i = 5
> The extended MultiHashMap will filter those objects by the field i and store each sorted
object into the map using the value of the field, i, as the key, such that the resulting MultiHashMap
looks as follows:
> key | values
> 1     | x1
> 2     | x2, x3
> 5     | x4, x5
> I have a class which does this and I find it invaluable in my day to day work. I don't
Collections has a similar one.
> Kind regards,
> John.
