Guava - Google Core Libraries for Java

  •        0

The Google Guava Libraries are a nice set of Java utility classes that will probably come in handy in any project. It provides immutable collections, string manipulation, handling primitives ,easier I/O, concurrency etc. it absolutely follows the Collections API requirements. It has support for murmur hash.

It is memory efficient. Its most interesting class is MapMaker, which is a ConcurrentMap builder, providing any combination of these features: soft or weak keys, soft or weak values, timed expiration, and on-demand computation of values. Check out their video in Youtube.

Koloboke - Java Collections till the last breadcrumb of memory and performance

Koloboke aims to replace the standard Java collections and streams with more efficient implementations. The current version of Koloboke focuses on replacing java.util.HashSet and java.util.HashMap. It provides a complete set of primitive type implementations for each collection. Its able to avoid the expensive boxing/unboxing of primitives and saves memory for boxed primitive objects. It is the fastest and the most memory efficient library implementing hash maps and sets.


A collection of Concurrent and Highly Scalable Utilities. These are intended as direct replacements for the java.util.* or java.util.concurrent.* collections but with better performance when many CPUs are using the collection concurrently.
