Having written many Java GUI applications, I thought it would be cool to run them embedded in IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse and NetBeans. I didn’t want to write 3 plugins per application so I came up with this solution.

Primitive Set Operations in Eclipse Collections — Part 2
Continuing from Part 1, in the Eclipse Collections 11.0 release, we will have the following Set operations union, intersect, difference, symmetricDifference, isSubsetOf, isProperSubsetOf, cartesianProduct on primitive collections.
These APIs are already available on Sets on the object side, but my goal was to implement these methods for Sets supporting primitive types namely IntSet, LongSet, ShortSet, DoubleSet, FloatSet, CharSet, BooleanSet, ByteSet. Additionally, the above operations will be available in both mutable and immutable interfaces.
Keeping Pace with Java Using Eclipse IDE
The Java language has been evolving at a fast pace with a six month release cadence and preview features.

To give them a spin, you have the tooling support in Eclipse Java IDE ready at your disposal.
Primitive Set Operations in Eclipse Collections
Eclipse Collections has a rich assortment of data structures, and one of them is a Set.
Recently, I worked on an issue to implement union, intersect, and difference operations in sets for primitive types.
The sections below cover each operation’s objective, design considerations, and code implementation.
The last section covers the takeaways.
