Hi,

I receive an arraylist with several objects like this,



but my arraylist contains equal objects (same name but different quantities and values). What I want to do is create an ArrayList with the distinct objects but summing the quantities and values.

Example

Assuming you have all the getX methods in SomeObject

CASE 1:

If you have control over SomeObject and if you can modify it,then the solution is very simple.

1.remove final modifier for all instance varialbles.
2.In the equals method,whenever the object names are equal
add up the current obj values with new object



CASE 2: If you can't modify the SOmeObject class,here is the solution.

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
