T
 the type of values handled by this object.public class Range<T extends Comparable<T>> extends Object
Constructor and Description 

Range(T value)
Initialize this range with the specified single value used as both lower and upper bounds.

Range(T lower,
T upper)
Initialize this range with the specified lower and upper bounds.

Modifier and Type  Method and Description 

boolean 
equals(Object obj) 
T 
getLower()
Get the lower bound.

T 
getUpper()
Get the upper bound.

int 
hashCode() 
boolean 
includes(Range<T> other)
Determine whether this range is a superset of the specified other.
More formally, this method returns true if other.lower >= this.lower and other.upper <= this.upper . 
Range<T> 
intersection(Range<T> other)
Construct a
Range that represents the intersection of this range and the other specified one.This is equivalent to building a range object with its lower bound equal to max(this.lower, other.lower)
and its upper bound equal to min(this.upper, other.upper) 
boolean 
intersects(Range<T> other)
Determine whether this range and the specified one have at least one value in common.

boolean 
intersects(Range<T> other,
boolean includeBounds)
Determine whether this range and the specified one have at least one value in common.

boolean 
isValueInRange(T value)
Determine if the specified value is included in this range.

boolean 
isValueInRange(T value,
boolean includeBounds)
Determine if the specified value is included in this range.

Range<T> 
merge(Range<T> other)
Construct a
Range that is made of all values between the lowest lower bound and the highest upper bound
of this range and the other specified range.

Range
that is made of all values between the lowest lower bound and the highest upper bound
of this range and the other specified range. This works even if the ranges are completely disjointed
(i.e if this.intersects(other)
== false
)min(this.lower, other.lower)

 the range to merge with.Range
object that encompasses all values between the lowest lower bound and the highest upper bound,
or a copy of this range if the other is null.public Range<T> intersection(Range<T> other)
Range
that represents the intersection of this range and the other specified one.max(this.lower, other.lower)
and its upper bound equal to min(this.upper, other.upper)

 the range to check against.other
is null or the ranges are disjointed
