        public static <K extends java.lang.Enum<K>,​V> ImmutableMap<K,​V> immutableEnumMap​(java.util.Map<K,​? extends V> map)
        Returns an immutable map instance containing the given entries. Internally, the returned map will be backed by an EnumMap.

        The iteration order of the returned map follows the enum's iteration order, not the order in which the elements appear in the given map.

        Parameters:
        map - the map to make an immutable copy of
        Returns:
        an immutable map containing those entries

        Returns a Collector that accumulates elements into an ImmutableMap whose keys and values are the result of applying the provided mapping functions to the input elements. The resulting implementation is specialized for enum key types. The returned map and its views will iterate over keys in their enum definition order, not encounter order.

        If the mapped keys contain duplicates, an IllegalArgumentException is thrown when the collection operation is performed. (This differs from the Collector returned by Collectors.toMap(Function, Function), which throws an IllegalStateException.)

      • newHashMap

        public static <K extends @Nullable java.lang.Object,​V extends @Nullable java.lang.Object> java.util.HashMap<K,​V> newHashMap()
        Creates a mutable, empty HashMap instance.

        Note: if mutability is not required, use ImmutableMap.of() instead.

        Note: if K is an enum type, use newEnumMap(java.lang.Class<K>) instead.

        Note: this method is now unnecessary and should be treated as deprecated. Instead, use the HashMap constructor directly, taking advantage of "diamond" syntax.

        Returns:
        a new, empty HashMap

        public static <K extends @Nullable java.lang.Object,​V extends @Nullable java.lang.Object> java.util.HashMap<K,​V> newHashMap​(java.util.Map<? extends K,​? extends V> map)
        Creates a mutable HashMap instance with the same mappings as the specified map.

        Note: if mutability is not required, use ImmutableMap.copyOf(Map) instead.

        Note: if K is an Enum type, use newEnumMap(java.lang.Class<K>) instead.

        Note: this method is now unnecessary and should be treated as deprecated. Instead, use the HashMap constructor directly, taking advantage of "diamond" syntax.

        Returns:
        a new, empty HashMap with enough capacity to hold expectedSize entries without resizing

        Computes the difference between two maps. This difference is an immutable snapshot of the state of the maps at the time this method is called. It will never change, even if the maps change at a later time.

        Since this method uses HashMap instances internally, the keys of the supplied maps must be well-behaved with respect to Object.equals(java.lang.Object) and Object.hashCode().

        Note:If you only need to know whether two maps have the same mappings, call left.equals(right) instead of this method.

        Parameters:
        left - the map to treat as the "left" map for purposes of comparison
        right - the map to treat as the "right" map for purposes of comparison

        Computes the difference between two sorted maps, using the comparator of the left map, or Ordering.natural() if the left map uses the natural ordering of its elements. This difference is an immutable snapshot of the state of the maps at the time this method is called. It will never change, even if the maps change at a later time.

        Since this method uses TreeMap instances internally, the keys of the right map must all compare as distinct according to the comparator of the left map.

        Note:If you only need to know whether two sorted maps have the same mappings, call left.equals(right) instead of this method.

        Parameters:
        left - the map to treat as the "left" map for purposes of comparison

        Returns a live Map view whose keys are the contents of set and whose values are computed on demand using function. To get an immutable copy instead, use toMap(Iterable, Function).

        Specifically, for each k in the backing set, the returned map has an entry mapping k to function.apply(k). The keySet, values, and entrySet views of the returned map iterate in the same order as the backing set.

        Modifications to the backing set are read through to the returned map. The returned map supports removal operations if the backing set does. Removal operations write through to the backing set. The returned map does not support put operations.

        Warning: If the function rejects null, caution is required to make sure the set does not contain null, because the view cannot stop null from being added to the set.

        Warning: This method assumes that for any instance k of key type K, k.equals(k2) implies that k2 is also of type K. Using a key type for which this may not hold, such as ArrayList, may risk a ClassCastException when calling methods on the resulting map view.

        public static <K extends @Nullable java.lang.Object,​V extends @Nullable java.lang.Object> BiMap<K,​V> synchronizedBiMap​(BiMap<K,​V> bimap)
        Returns a synchronized (thread-safe) bimap backed by the specified bimap. In order to guarantee serial access, it is critical that all access to the backing bimap is accomplished through the returned bimap.

        It is imperative that the user manually synchronize on the returned map when accessing any of its collection views:

        
         BiMap<Long, String> map = Maps.synchronizedBiMap(
             HashBiMap.<Long, String>create());
         ...
         Set<Long> set = map.keySet();  // Needn't be in synchronized block
         ...
         synchronized (map) {  // Synchronizing on map, not set!
           Iterator<Long> it = set.iterator(); // Must be in synchronized block
           while (it.hasNext()) {
             foo(it.next());
           }
         }
         

        Failure to follow this advice may result in non-deterministic behavior.

        The returned bimap will be serializable if the specified bimap is serializable.

        Parameters:
        bimap - the bimap to be wrapped in a synchronized view
        Returns:
        a synchronized view of the specified bimap

        Returns an unmodifiable view of the specified bimap. This method allows modules to provide users with "read-only" access to internal bimaps. Query operations on the returned bimap "read through" to the specified bimap, and attempts to modify the returned map, whether direct or via its collection views, result in an UnsupportedOperationException.

        The returned bimap will be serializable if the specified bimap is serializable.

        Parameters:
        bimap - the bimap for which an unmodifiable view is to be returned

        The resulting map's keySet(), entrySet(), and values() views have iterators that don't support remove(), but all other methods are supported by the map and its views.

        The returned map isn't threadsafe or serializable, even if unfiltered is.

        Many of the filtered map's methods, such as size(), iterate across every key/value mapping in the underlying map and determine which satisfy the filter. When a live view is not needed, it may be faster to copy the filtered map and use the copy.

        Returns an unmodifiable view of the specified navigable map. Query operations on the returned map read through to the specified map, and attempts to modify the returned map, whether direct or via its views, result in an UnsupportedOperationException.

        The returned navigable map will be serializable if the specified navigable map is serializable.

        This method's signature will not permit you to convert a NavigableMap<? extends K, V> to a NavigableMap<K, V>. If it permitted this, the returned map's comparator() method might return a Comparator<? extends K>, which works only on a particular subtype of K, but promise that it's a Comparator<? super K>, which must work on any type of K.

        Parameters:
        map - the navigable map for which an unmodifiable view is to be returned
        Returns:
        an unmodifiable view of the specified navigable map

        Returns a synchronized (thread-safe) navigable map backed by the specified navigable map. In order to guarantee serial access, it is critical that all access to the backing navigable map is accomplished through the returned navigable map (or its views).

        It is imperative that the user manually synchronize on the returned navigable map when iterating over any of its collection views, or the collections views of any of its descendingMap, subMap, headMap or tailMap views.

        
         NavigableMap<K, V> map = synchronizedNavigableMap(new TreeMap<K, V>());
        
         // Needn't be in synchronized block
         NavigableSet<K> set = map.navigableKeySet();
        
         synchronized (map) { // Synchronizing on map, not set!
           Iterator<K> it = set.iterator(); // Must be in synchronized block
           while (it.hasNext()) {
             foo(it.next());
           }
         }
         

        or:

        
         NavigableMap<K, V> map = synchronizedNavigableMap(new TreeMap<K, V>());
         NavigableMap<K, V> map2 = map.subMap(foo, false, bar, true);
        
         // Needn't be in synchronized block
         NavigableSet<K> set2 = map2.descendingKeySet();
        
         synchronized (map) { // Synchronizing on map, not map2 or set2!
           Iterator<K> it = set2.iterator(); // Must be in synchronized block
           while (it.hasNext()) {
             foo(it.next());
           }
         }
         

        Failure to follow this advice may result in non-deterministic behavior.

        The returned navigable map will be serializable if the specified navigable map is serializable.

        Parameters:
        navigableMap - the navigable map to be "wrapped" in a synchronized navigable map.
        Returns:
        a synchronized view of the specified navigable map.

        Returns a view of the portion of map whose keys are contained by range.

        This method delegates to the appropriate methods of NavigableMap (namely subMap(), tailMap(), and headMap()) to actually construct the view. Consult these methods for a full description of the returned view's behavior.

        Warning: Ranges always represent a range of values using the values' natural ordering. NavigableMap on the other hand can specify a custom ordering via a Comparator, which can violate the natural ordering. Using this method (or in general using Range) with unnaturally-ordered maps can lead to unexpected and undefined behavior.
