HashMap

HashMap数据结构

JDK1.8以前HashMap的实现是 数组+链表
JDK1.8开始HashMap的实现是 数组+链表/红黑树,如下图:

HashMap类中有两个常量:

/**
* The bin count threshold for using a tree rather than list for a
* bin. Bins are converted to trees when adding an element to a
* bin with at least this many nodes. The value must be greater
* than 2 and should be at least 8 to mesh with assumptions in
* tree removal about conversion back to plain bins upon
* shrinkage.
*/
static final int TREEIFY_THRESHOLD = 8;

/**
* The bin count threshold for untreeifying a (split) bin during a
* resize operation. Should be less than TREEIFY_THRESHOLD, and at
* most 6 to mesh with shrinkage detection under removal.
*/
static final int UNTREEIFY_THRESHOLD = 6;

当链表中节点数量大于等于TREEIFY_THRESHOLD时,链表会转成红黑树。

当链表中节点数量小于等于UNTREEIFY_THRESHOLD时,红黑树会转成链表。

为什么TREEIFY_THRESHOLD的默认值被设定为8?

/* Because TreeNodes are about twice the size of regular nodes, we
* use them only when bins contain enough nodes to warrant use
* (see TREEIFY_THRESHOLD). And when they become too small (due to
* removal or resizing) they are converted back to plain bins. In
* usages with well-distributed user hashCodes, tree bins are
* rarely used. Ideally, under random hashCodes, the frequency of
* nodes in bins follows a Poisson distribution
* (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poisson_distribution) with a
* parameter of about 0.5 on average for the default resizing
* threshold of 0.75, although with a large variance because of
* resizing granularity. Ignoring variance, the expected
* occurrences of list size k are (exp(-0.5) * pow(0.5, k) /
* factorial(k)). The first values are:
*
* 0: 0.60653066
* 1: 0.30326533
* 2: 0.07581633
* 3: 0.01263606
* 4: 0.00157952
* 5: 0.00015795
* 6: 0.00001316
* 7: 0.00000094
* 8: 0.00000006
* more: less than 1 in ten million

当hashCode离散性很好的时候,树型bin用到的概率非常小,因为数据均匀分布在每个bin中,几乎不会有bin中链表长度会达到阈值。但是在随机hashCode下,离散性可能会变差,然而JDK又不能阻止用户实现这种不好的hash算法,因此就可能导致不均匀的数据分布。不过理想情况下随机hashCode算法下所有bin中节点的分布频率会遵循泊松分布,我们可以看到,一个bin中链表长度达到8个元素的概率为0.00000006,几乎是不可能事件。所以,之所以选择8,不是拍拍屁股决定的,而是根据概率统计决定的。
