Method Detail

getValues

public java.util.List getValues(java.lang.Object name)
Get multiple values. Single valued entries are converted to singleton lists.

Parameters:
name - The entry key.
Returns:
Unmodifieable List of values.

getValue

public java.lang.Object getValue(java.lang.Object name,
                                 int i)
Get a value from a multiple value. If the value is not a multivalue, then index 0 retrieves the value or null.

Parameters:
name - The entry key.
i - Index of element to get.
Returns:
Unmodifieable List of values.

getString

public java.lang.String getString(java.lang.Object name)

Parameters:
name - The entry key.
Returns:
String value.
