Subject [jira] [Commented] (COLLECTIONS-366) A light-weight list of integers
Date Thu, 07 Mar 2013 18:36:12 GMT


Benedikt Ritter commented on COLLECTIONS-366:

Thomas, thanks for the clarification. 
As you also work on o.a.c.math, I think you have a stronger background in mathematical theory
than I have. 
So if this behavior is correct from a mathematical/definition point of view this should only
be made explicit in JavaDoc.

I personally think this is confusing (never used the IntRange from o.a.c.lang 2.x).

> Sometimes there is a demand too have a list, that represents numbers within some range
(say, [5..10]). If the range is big (millions of records), creating a dummy list that holds
all instances of objects is too expensive.
> The provided implementation (attached to this issue) solves this problem. Nice to have
in commons collections.
