Trove was developed to be a Java library that is supposed to provide high speed regular and primitive collections. Trove allows both server-side and client applications to work faster and use less memory.
The Trove library has two objectives:
· Provide “free” (as in “free speech” and “free beer”), fast, lightweight implementations of the java.util Collections API. These implementations are designed to be pluggable replacements for their JDK equivalents.
· Provide primitive collections with similar APIs to the above. This gap in the JDK is often addressed by using the “wrapper” classes (java.lang.Integer, java.lang.Float, etc.) with Object-based collections. For most applications, however, collections which store primitives directly will require less space and yield significant performance gains.
