Class CaseInsensitiveComparator

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    class CaseInsensitiveComparator
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements java.util.Comparator
    Comparator that compares all strings differently, but if two strings are equal in case-insensitive match they are right next to each other.

    Note: strings that differ only in upper-lower case are treated by this comparator as distinct.

    In a collection sorted on this comparator, we can find case-insensitive matches for a given string using floorKey(java.lang.String) and ceilingKey(java.lang.String).
