Subject [classlib][luni] A problem about behavior of EnumMap
Date Mon, 28 Aug 2006 07:33:52 GMT
Hi All:
When I develop EnumMap,I find EnumMap strange on RI. As the following 
code describes, the method entrySet() of 
EnumMap returns a set view of mappings contained in this map. Then we 
get the set's iterator and use the iterator's next() method to get an 
Entry which contains one mapping. But if we use next() method again to 
get another Entry, the previous Entry will also point to the next Entry.

import java.util.EnumMap;
import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.Map;
import java.util.Set;

import junit.framework.TestCase;

public class EnumMapTest extends TestCase{
    enum Size {
        Small, Middle, Big {
    public void test_entrySet() {
        EnumMap enumSizeMap = new EnumMap(Size.class);
        enumSizeMap.put(Size.Middle, 1);
        enumSizeMap.put(Size.Big, null);

        Set set = enumSizeMap.entrySet();
        Iterator iter = set.iterator();
        Map.Entry entry = (Map.Entry) iter.next();
        assertEquals(Size.Middle, entry.getKey());
        Map.Entry entry1 = (Map.Entry) iter.next();
        assertEquals(Size.Big, entry.getKey());
I guess on RI, the returned iterator maintains a reference to current 
entry and returns this reference in iter.next() method.
I do not think RI's  behavior makes sense here. So I suggest not to 
follow RI on the behavior.
