Interface ConsistentHash.Hash<T>

  • Enclosing class:

    public static interface ConsistentHash.Hash<T>
    Hashes an object to some value.

    By default, ConsistentHash uses Object.toString() on 'T' to obtain the hash, but that behavior can be changed by providing a ConsistentHash.Hash implementation.

    This hash function need not produce a very uniform distribution, as the output is rehashed with SHA-256. But it does need to make sure it doesn't produce the same value for two different 'T's (and that's why this returns String, not the usual int.)
