Subject [jira] Updated: (COLLECTIONS-294) Fix case-insensitive string handling
Date Sun, 11 May 2008 09:31:55 GMT


Benjamin Bentmann updated COLLECTIONS-294:

    Attachment: COLLECTIONS-294-CaseInsensitiveMap.patch

Yes, you're right, the map thing is trickier than I realized. Attached is a new patch that
makes key comparisons behave as {{equalsIgnoreCase()}} would do (watch out for the extended
unit test that fails when using {{String.toLowerCase()}} in {{convertKey()}}).

A question that pops up is whether {{CaseInsensitiveMap}} should have been case-preserving
for keys, i.e. store keys in their original case but compare case-insensitively. I mean, there
seem to be two different use cases involved here:
# case-insentive key lookup, i.e. {{map.get("key") == map.get("KEY")}} but possibly {{map.keySet().contains("Key")}}
# automatic key normalization to lower/upper case to provide a specific key set view
