Sextet Class in JavaTuples

  • Last Updated : 11 Aug, 2021
Geek Week

A Sextet is a Tuple from JavaTuples library that deals with 3 elements. Since this Sextet is a generic class, it can hold any type of value in it.
Since Sextet is a Tuple, hence it also has all the characteristics of JavaTuples: 
 

  • They are Typesafe
  • They are Immutable
  • They are Iterable
  • They are Serializable
  • They are Comparable (implements Comparable<Tuple>)
  • They implement equals() and hashCode()
  • They also implement toString()

 

Class Declaration

 

public final class Sextet<A, B, C, D, E, F> extends Tuple
implements IValue0<A>, IValue1<B>, IValue2<C>, IValue3<D>, IValue4<E>, IValue5<F>

 

Class hierarchy

 



Object
  ↳ org.javatuples.Tuple
      ↳ org.javatuples.Sextet<A, B, C, D, E, F>

 

Creating Sextet Tuple

 

  • From Constructor:
    Syntax
     
Sextet<A, B, C, D, E, F> sextet = 
    new Sextet<A, B, C, D, E. F>
        (value1, value2, value3, value4, value5, value6);
  • Example
     

Java




// Below is a Java program to create
// a Sextet tuple from Constructor
 
import java.util.*;
import org.javatuples.Sextet;
 
class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Sextet<Integer, Integer.Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> sextet
            = Sextet.with(Integer.valueOf(1),
                          Integer.valueOf(2),
                          Integer.valueOf(3),
                          Integer.valueOf(4),
                          Integer.valueOf(5),
                          Integer.valueOf(6));
 
        System.out.println(sextet);
    }
}
  • Output: 
     
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
  •  
  • Using with() method: The with() method is a function provided by the JavaTuples library, to instantiate the object with such values.
    Syntax
     
Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6> sextet = 
    Sextet.with(value1, value2, value3, value4, value5, value6);
  • Example
     

Java




// Below is a Java program to create
// a Sextet tuple from with() method
 
import java.util.*;
import org.javatuples.Sextet;
 
class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Sextet<Integer, Integer.Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> sextet
            = Sextet.with(Integer.valueOf(1),
                          Integer.valueOf(2),
                          Integer.valueOf(3),
                          Integer.valueOf(4),
                          Integer.valueOf(5),
                          Integer.valueOf(6));
 
        System.out.println(sextet);
    }
}
  • Output: 
     
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
  •  
  • From other collections: The fromCollection() method is used to create a Tuple from a collection, and fromArray() method is used to create from an array. The collection/array must have the same type as of the Tuple and the number of values in the collection/array must match the Tuple class.
    Syntax
     
Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6> sextet = 
    Sextet.fromCollection(collectionWith_6_value);

Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6> sextet = 
    Sextet.fromArray(arrayWith_6_value);
  • Example
     

Java




// Below is a Java program to create
// a Sextet tuple from Collection
 
import java.util.*;
import org.javatuples.Sextet;
 
class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Creating Sextet from List
        List<Integer> list = new ArrayList<Integer>();
        list.add(1);
        list.add(2);
        list.add(3);
        list.add(4);
        list.add(5);
        list.add(6);
 
        Sextet<Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> sextet
            = Sextet.fromCollection(list);
 
        // Creating Sextet from Array
        Integer[] arr = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 };
 
        Sextet<Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> otherSextet
            = Sextet.fromArray(arr);
 
        System.out.println(sextet);
        System.out.println(otherSextet);
    }
}
  • Output: 
     
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]

Getting value

The getValueX() method can be used to fetch the value in a Tuple at index X. The indexing in Tuples start with 0. Hence the value at index X represents the value at position X+1.
Syntax
 

Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6> sextet = 
    new Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6>
               (value1, value2, value3, value4, value5, value6);

type1 val1 = sextet.getValue0();

Example
 



Java




// Below is a Java program to get
// a Sextet value
 
import java.util.*;
import org.javatuples.Sextet;
 
class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Sextet<Integer, Integer.Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> sextet
            = Sextet.with(Integer.valueOf(1),
                          Integer.valueOf(2),
                          Integer.valueOf(3),
                          Integer.valueOf(4),
                          Integer.valueOf(5),
                          Integer.valueOf(6));
 
        System.out.println(sextet.getValue0());
        System.out.println(sextet.getValue2());
    }
}

Output: 
 

1
3

 

Setting Sextet Value

Since the Tuples are immutable, it means that modifying a value at an index is not possible. Hence JavaTuples offer setAtX(value) which creates a copy of the Tuple with a new value at index X, and returns that Tuple.
Syntax
 

Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6> sextet = 
    new Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6>
                (value1, value2, value3, value4, value5, value6);

Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6> 
    otherSextet = sextet.setAtX(value);

Example
 

Java




// Below is a Java program to set
// a Sextet value
 
import java.util.*;
import org.javatuples.Sextet;
 
class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Sextet<Integer, Integer.Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> sextet
            = Sextet.with(Integer.valueOf(1),
                          Integer.valueOf(2),
                          Integer.valueOf(3),
                          Integer.valueOf(4),
                          Integer.valueOf(5),
                          Integer.valueOf(6));
 
        Sextet<Integer, Integer.Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> otherSextet
            = sextet.setAt3(40);
 
        System.out.println(otherSextet);
    }
}

Output: 
 

[1, 2, 3, 40, 5, 6]

 

Adding a Value

Adding a value can be done with the help of addAtX() method, where X represents the index at which the value is to be added. This method returns a Tuple of element one more than the called Tuple.
Syntax
 

Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6> sextet = 
    new Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6>
        (value1, value2, value3, value4, value5, value6);

Sextet<type 1, type 2, type 3, type 4, type 5, type 6> sextet = 
    sextet.addAtx(value);

Example
 



Java




// Below is a Java program to add
// a value
 
import java.util.*;
import org.javatuples.Sextet;
import org.javatuples.Septet;
 
class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Sextet<Integer, Integer.Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> sextet
            = Sextet.with(Integer.valueOf(1),
                          Integer.valueOf(2),
                          Integer.valueOf(3),
                          Integer.valueOf(4),
                          Integer.valueOf(5),
                          Integer.valueOf(6));
 
        Septet<Integer, Integer.Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> septet
            = sextet.addAt6(7);
 
        System.out.println(septet);
    }
}

Output: 
 

[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]

 

Searching in Sextet

An element can be searched in a tuple with the pre-defined method contains(). It returns a boolean value whether the value is present or not.
Syntax
 

Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6> sextet = 
    new Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6>
        (value1, value2, value3, value4, value5, value6);

boolean res = sextet.contains(value2);

Example
 

Java




// Below is a Java program to search
// a value in a Sextet
 
import java.util.*;
import org.javatuples.Sextet;
 
class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Sextet<Integer, Integer.Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> sextet
            = Sextet.with(Integer.valueOf(1),
                          Integer.valueOf(2),
                          Integer.valueOf(3),
                          Integer.valueOf(4),
                          Integer.valueOf(5),
                          Integer.valueOf(6));
 
        boolean exist = sextet.contains(5);
        boolean exist1 = sextet.contains(false);
 
        System.out.println(exist);
        System.out.println(exist1);
    }
}

Output: 
 

true
false

 

Iterating through Sextet

Since Sextet implement the Iterable<Object> interface. It means that they can be iterated in the same way as collections or arrays.
Syntax
 

Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6> sextet = 
    new Sextet<type1, type2, type3, type4, type5, type6>
            (value1, value2, value3, value4, value5, value6);

for (Object item : sextet) {
        ...
}

Example
 

Java




// Below is a Java program to iterate
// a Sextet
 
import java.util.*;
import org.javatuples.Sextet;
 
class GfG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Sextet<Integer, Integer.Integer, Integer, Integer, Integer> sextet
            = Sextet.with(Integer.valueOf(1),
                          Integer.valueOf(2),
                          Integer.valueOf(3),
                          Integer.valueOf(4),
                          Integer.valueOf(5),
                          Integer.valueOf(6));
 
        for (Object item : sextet)
            System.out.println(item);
    }
}

Output: 
 

1
2
3
4
5
6
