Subject Re: [Collections] Add Object to Collection if not null
Date Fri, 09 Jul 2004 19:23:06 GMT
I quite like this idea, as it is simple and does cover a case I can see
people finding.

It might be worth opening a bugzilla entry for it so it is kept track of.

I was looking for a method that adds a object in a Collection
if this object is not null, but I did not find it in
Collections. I thought that this method would be useful in
CollectionUtils class. Is there a method like this? If it
does not exist I would like suggest this. It could be
implemented like this:

public static boolean addNotNull(Collection c, Object o) {
   return (o != null)? c.add(o): false;

Like Collection.add(Object) returns boolean, this method will
boolean too.
What is your opinion?
