Class IndexPropertyList

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Iterable, Collection, List, ValueHolder

public class IndexPropertyList
extends AbstractList
implements ValueHolder
A List implementation that would maintain its internal ordering based on some object numeric "index" property. When objects are added to the list at a certain index, an "index" property is modified to reflect list order, when objects are removed, their index property is set to the negative number.

For performance reasons this implementation does not guarantee that there is no gaps in the integer ordering sequence (i.e. generally object.getIndexProperty() != list.indexOf(object)). However it guarantees the right ordering based on index property.
