Newbie question: Hashmap with composite object key
I'm new to Java and I've been developing my knowledge by writing a tool to process network trace files. I use jnetpcap to read the trace files and I want to create a hashmap entry for each TCP session (plus a value called SMB Sequence Number).
So I have a class for the key that looks like this:
byte ipClientAddress = new byte;
byte ipServerAddress = new byte;
void Init(byte ipClient, byte ipServer, int tcpClient, int tcpServer, long seqNumber)
ipClientAddress = ipClient;
ipServerAddress = ipClient;
tcpClientPort = tcpClient;
tcpServerPort = tcpServer;
cmdSequenceNumber = seqNumber;
I'm not sure how I handle this. Do I have to instantiate an individual object for each key, and if so what's the best way to do this?
Thanks and regards...Paul
