CollectionConverters

This object contains methods that convert between Scala and Java collections.

The explicit conversion methods defined here are intended to be used in Java code. For Scala code, it is recommended to use the extension methods defined in scala.jdk.CollectionConverters.

Note: to create Java Streams that operate on Scala collections (sequentially or in parallel), use StreamConverters.

// Java Code import scala.jdk.javaapi.CollectionConverters; public class A { public void t(scala.collection.immutable.List l) { java.util.List jl = CollectionConverters.asJava(l); } }

The conversions return adapters for the corresponding API, i.e., the collections are wrapped, not converted. Changes to the original collection are reflected in the view, and vice versa.

The following conversions are supported via asScala and asJava:

scala.collection.Iterable <=> java.lang.Iterable scala.collection.Iterator <=> java.util.Iterator scala.collection.mutable.Buffer <=> java.util.List scala.collection.mutable.Set <=> java.util.Set scala.collection.mutable.Map <=> java.util.Map scala.collection.concurrent.Map <=> java.util.concurrent.ConcurrentMap

The following conversions are supported via asScala and through specially-named methods to convert to Java collections, as shown:

scala.collection.Iterable <=> java.util.Collection (via asJavaCollection) scala.collection.Iterator <=> java.util.Enumeration (via asJavaEnumeration) scala.collection.mutable.Map <=> java.util.Dictionary (via asJavaDictionary)

In addition, the following one-way conversions are provided via asJava:

scala.collection.Seq => java.util.List scala.collection.mutable.Seq => java.util.List scala.collection.Set => java.util.Set scala.collection.Map => java.util.Map

The following one way conversion is provided via asScala:

java.util.Properties => scala.collection.mutable.Map

In all cases, converting from a source type to a target type and back again will return the original source object.

def asJava[K, V](m: Map[K, V]): ConcurrentMap[K, V]

Converts a Scala mutable concurrent.Map to a Java ConcurrentMap.

The returned Java ConcurrentMap is backed by the provided Scala concurrent.Map and any side-effects of using it via the Java interface will be visible via the Scala interface and vice versa.

If the Scala concurrent.Map was previously obtained from an implicit or explicit call of asScala then the original Java ConcurrentMap will be returned.
