Method Detail

putIfAbsent

V putIfAbsent(K key,
              V value)
If the specified key is not already associated with a value, associate it with the given value. This is equivalent to
   if (!map.containsKey(key)) 
      return map.put(key, value);
   else
      return map.get(key);
 
Except that the action is performed atomically.

Parameters:
key - key with which the specified value is to be associated.
value - value to be associated with the specified key.
Returns:
previous value associated with specified key, or null if there was no mapping for key. A null return can also indicate that the map previously associated null with the specified key, if the implementation supports null values.
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the put operation is not supported by this map.
ClassCastException - if the class of the specified key or value prevents it from being stored in this map.
IllegalArgumentException - if some aspect of this key or value prevents it from being stored in this map.
NullPointerException - if this map does not permit null keys or values, and the specified key or value is null.

remove

boolean remove(Object key,
               Object value)
Remove entry for key only if currently mapped to given value. Acts as
 
  if ((map.containsKey(key) && map.get(key).equals(value)) {
     map.remove(key);
     return true;
 } else return false;
 
except that the action is performed atomically.

Parameters:
key - key with which the specified value is associated.
value - value associated with the specified key.
Returns:
true if the value was removed, false otherwise
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the remove operation is not supported by this map.
NullPointerException - if this map does not permit null keys or values, and the specified key or value is null.

replace

boolean replace(K key,
                V oldValue,
                V newValue)
Replace entry for key only if currently mapped to given value. Acts as
 
  if ((map.containsKey(key) && map.get(key).equals(oldValue)) {
     map.put(key, newValue);
     return true;
 } else return false;
 
except that the action is performed atomically.

Parameters:
key - key with which the specified value is associated.
oldValue - value expected to be associated with the specified key.
newValue - value to be associated with the specified key.
Returns:
true if the value was replaced
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the put operation is not supported by this map.
NullPointerException - if this map does not permit null keys or values, and the specified key or value is null.

replace

V replace(K key,
          V value)
Replace entry for key only if currently mapped to some value. Acts as
 
  if ((map.containsKey(key)) {
     return map.put(key, value);
 } else return null;
 
except that the action is performed atomically.

Parameters:
key - key with which the specified value is associated.
value - value to be associated with the specified key.
Returns:
previous value associated with specified key, or null if there was no mapping for key. A null return can also indicate that the map previously associated null with the specified key, if the implementation supports null values.
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the put operation is not supported by this map.
NullPointerException - if this map does not permit null keys or values, and the specified key or value is null.
