Hash functions is a very general term. What exactly do you need? A typical hash function uses multiplcation, addition, with a prime number in there somewhere to generate the hash. For example, a simple hash function for a class containing two values would be
Code java:
public class Test{ int var1; int var2; @Override public int hashCode() { final int prime = 31; int result = 1; result = prime * result + var1; result = prime * result + var2; return result; } }
Eclipse can generate these for you.
A hash function is simply a way to take the data inside an object and reduce it down to 1 number. This can be done any many ways. The important thing is that for the exact same object, this number must always be the same. The hash function should also attempt to be as "random" as possible between different objects, but it's near impossible to guarantee that a hash function will have no collisions.
