The ConcurrentNavigableMap is an interface that defines interesting data structures provided by the Java API that you can use in your concurrent programs. The classes that implement the ConcurrentNavigableMap interface stores elements in two parts:
- A key that uniquely identifies an element
- The rest of the data that defines the element, called value
The Java API also provides a class that implements ConcurrentSkipListMap, which is the interface that implements a non-blocking list with the behavior of the ConcurrentNavigableMap interface. Internally, it uses a Skip List to store data. A Skip List is a data structure based on parallel lists that allow us to get the kind of efficiency that is associated with ...
