Subject Re: [jira] Created: (HARMONY-6145) [classlib][luni] java.lang.LinkedList.addAll(Collection<? extends E> collection) runs into endless loop
Date Fri, 10 Apr 2009 09:53:13 GMT
When add a collection to itself, this endless loop results from increasing
of collection due to adding elements.
Other collections that implements set or map interface will only have sole
element. Thus adding self will not change the size.

Therefore, only collections implements List or Queue may possibly results in
such failure.

Till now, I don't find any other class that fails on this.
