Subject [jira] [Commented] (COLLECTIONS-459) ArrayIterator & ObjectArrayIterator - do they need setters?`
Date Tue, 18 Jun 2013 08:33:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COLLECTIONS-459?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13686499#comment-13686499

Thomas Neidhart commented on COLLECTIONS-459:
---------------------------------------------

I started doing this, but after I had the code the retrieve the array to alter or access an
element I was unhappy with the result.
The fields are already final, thus unmodifiable by sub-classes.

Also keep in mind that iterators in general are not supposed to be thread-safe, so I do not
see the point in trying to achieve something that is not necessary.

> ArrayIterator & ObjectArrayIterator both have methods to set the array separately
from the ctor.
> However the method does not allow the same flexibility as the ctor, as it does not allow
the start or end indexes to be set.
> Is there really a use-case for these setters? If not, all the fields apart from index
could be made final, which would make thread safety (and testing) easier.
