    Description
    static final class 
    A simple combinatorial filter that requires all inner filters to accept an element to be fulfilled.
    static class 
    Abstract definition for combinatorial filters.
    static final class 
    Simple equality filter implementation.
    static final class 
    A filter implementation accepting elements based on a logical consequence concept, i.e., it accepts an element, if the implication accepting the element is a consequence of the condition accepting it.
    static final class 
    A simple filter negating the single inner one.
    static final class 
    A simple combinatorial filter that requires one of the inner filters to accept an element to be fulfilled.
    static interface 
    Extension to a filter definition that provides the element in question as type safe object, if the filter accepted it.
