Is it possible to add elements to a collection while iterating over it?
More specifically, I would like to iterate over a collection, and if an element satisfies a certain condition I want to add some other elements to the collection, and make sure that these added elements are iterated over as well. (I realise that this could lead to an unterminating loop, but I'm pretty sure it won't in my case.)
The Java Tutorial from Sun suggests this is not possible: "Note that
Iterator.remove is the only safe way to modify a collection during iteration; the behavior is unspecified if the underlying collection is modified in any other way while the iteration is in progress."
So if I can't do what I want to do using iterators, what do you suggest I do?
