<a name="Introduction"></a>
<h3>1.  INTRODUCTION</h3>

<p>The <em>Collections</em> package contains a set of Java classes that
extend or augment the Java Collections Framework.
The following classes are included:</p>
<ul>
<li><strong>ArrayEnumeration</strong> - a java.util.Enumeration wrapper for arrays.</li>
<li><strong>ArrayIterator</strong> - a java.util.Iterator wrapper for arrays.</li>
<li><strong>ArrayStack</strong> - An implementation of the java.util.Stack API
    that is based on an ArrayList instead of a Vector, so it is not synchronized to
    protect against multi-threaded access.</li>
<li><strong>BeanMap</strong> - An implementation of the java.util.Map API
    that is based on a JavaBean using introspection. The property names are the
    keys of the map and the property values are the values of the map.</li>
<li><strong>CollectionUtils</strong> - a variety of helper methods
    for working with collections.</li>
<li><strong>CursorableLinkedList</strong> - an implementation of the java.util.List
    interface supporting a java.util.ListIterator that allows concurrent
    modifications to the underlying list.</li>
<li><strong>ExtendedProperties</strong> - extends normal Java properties by adding
    the possibility to use the same key many times, concatenating the value strings
    instead of overwriting them.</li>
<li><strong>FastArrayList</strong> - a custom implementation of java.util.ArrayList
    designed to operate in a multithreaded environment where the large majority of
    method calls are read-only, instead of structural changes.</li>
<li><strong>FastHashMap</strong> - a custom implementation of java.util.HashMap
    designed to operate in a multithreaded environment where the large majority of
    method calls are read-only, instead of structural changes.</li>
<li><strong>FastTreeMap</strong> - a custom implementation of java.util.TreeMap
    designed to operate in a multithreaded environment where the large majority of
    method calls are read-only, instead of structural changes.</li>
<li><strong>ListUtils</strong> - miscelaneous utilities to manipulate Lists.</li>
<li><strong>PriorityQueue</strong> - a PriorityQueue interface, with
    <strong>BinaryHeap</strong> and <strong>SynchronizedPriorityQueue</strong>
    implementations.</li>
</ul>

<a name="Dependencies"></a>
<h3>2.  DEPENDENCIES</h3>

<p>The <em>Collections</em> package is dependent upon the following external
components for development and use:</p>

    (Version 1.2 or later)</li>
<li><a href="http://www.junit.org">JUnit Testing Framework</a>
    (Version 3.7 or later) - for unit tests only, not required
    for deployment</li>
</ul>
