say i have a Map, a HashMap

and its key is a bunch of Integer and the values is a List of strings. i.e.


then i have a Set that stores a list and it looks like this:



from the above set we can see that in the first list is ["A", "B", "C", "D", "F", "G" ]

and this list belongs matchest the value in the map with the key 1 and 3.

for the second list in the set ["A", "B", "E", "D", "F", "G"], this list matchest the value in the map with the key 2 and 3

i've built up a rough code to build the map and the setOfList, see code,



anyone can help me solve this,

thanks

Well, if I had to do it, I would have done this to load the lists;

With JDK 1.5:



With JDK 1.4


Now, I do not clearly understand the rest of your algoritm or its purpose.

I hope that helps!
