Subject [jira] [Commented] (COLLECTIONS-296) Introduce SortedUtils.merge() for merging sorted collections
Date Sun, 28 Apr 2013 14:00:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COLLECTIONS-296?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13644010#comment-13644010
] 

Thomas Neidhart commented on COLLECTIONS-296:
---------------------------------------------

I did improve the implementation by re-using a CollatingIterator, and also decided to rename
the merge methods to collate, which is clearer imho.
