Apache Commons Collections seeks to build upon the JDK classes by providing new interfaces, implementations and utilities. There are many features, including:

  • Bag interface for collections that have a number of copies of each object
  • BidiMap interface for maps that can be looked up from value to key as well and key to value
  • MapIterator interface to provide simple and quick iteration over maps
  • Transforming decorators that alter each object as it is added to the collection
  • Composite collections that make multiple collections look like one
  • Ordered maps and sets that retain the order elements are added in, including an LRU based map
  • Reference map that allows keys and/or values to be garbage collected under close control
  • Many comparator implementations
  • Many iterator implementations
  • Adapter classes from array and enumerations to collections
  • Utilities to test or create typical set-theory properties of collections such as union, intersection, and closure
