Class Ret4<A,​B,​C,​D>

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.io.Serializable

    public class Ret4<A,​B,​C,​D>
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements java.io.Serializable
    Ret4 - Documentation.

    This simple generic-class allows a function to return four objects as a result, instead of just one. This is not always so useful, and can make code confusing. However there are some instances where the only alternative would be to create an entirely new class/object, when only a single method result would use that object.

      • serialVersionUID

        public static final long serialVersionUID
        This fulfils the SerialVersion UID requirement for all classes that implement Java's interface java.io.Serializable. Using the Serializable Implementation offered by java is very easy, and can make saving program state when debugging a lot easier. It can also be used in place of more complicated systems like "hibernate" to store data as well.
