Interface Comparators.PartialOrder

All Known Implementing Classes:
NodeOrderComparator, SwimLaneDescriptor, XCoordComparator
Enclosing class:

public static interface Comparators.PartialOrder

Tag interface to mark Comparator or comparable implementations that do not define a total order but only a partial order. Implementations tagged with this interface use a special sorting algorithm that is behavior-compatible with the pre-Java-7 sorting algorithms in the sense that it does not throw IllegalArgumentException if the specified Comparator used for sorting does not define a total order.
