Greg Sheremeta commented on COLLECTIONS-225:
--------------------------------------------

I used Patricia tree from http://code.google.com/p/patricia-trie/

It works great -- thank you Sam and Roger.

It would be helpful if it made its way into collections, for Maven availability and for corporate
policy reasons.

> We (Roger Kapsi & I) would like to contribute a Patricia tree.  The tree implements
the Map & SortedMap interface, meaning it can be used as a replacement for any arbitrary
map.  It also implementes a new 'Trie' interface, allowing other implementations or other
varieties of Tries to be added.  The tree is currently written for generics, but that can
easily be removed.  We have used the tree as the structure backing a route table in a new
Kademlia-based DHT, as the structure backing an IP filter (storing IP addresses & IP ranges,
allowing retrieval/searching in nanoseconds), and have tested it with Strings by storing all
of 'hamlet' and comparing it against a TreeSet.  The tree is also ready to implement NavigableMap
whenever Java 1.6 becomes available.
> I will attach the files in an update to this issue
