public class MapFactory
- extends Object
Factory class for creating Maps.
The main purpose of this class is to take advantage of Java 5
Concurrent classes if they are available. We use reflection to instantiate
java.util.concurrent classes to avoid compile time dependency on Java 5.
See Issue 607
for more info on this class.

public static Map create(int size,
- Creates a new instance of a class that implements Map interface.
Note that there is a small performance penalty because concurrent
maps are created using reflection.
size - initial size of the map
loadFactor - smaller value = better performance,
larger value = better memory utilization
concurrencyLevel - estimated number of writer Threads.
If this is smaller than 1, HashMap is always returned which is not
allowNullKeys - if true, the returned Map instance supports null keys
- one of ConcurrentHashMap, HashMap, Hashtable
