public abstract class Sequence
extends Object

Arbitrary sequence of elements. A sequence of elements is defined to contain elements in the index range [0, size()), like a standard Java List implementation. Unlike a List, the members of the sequence are not directly obtainable. Implementations of Sequence are primarily intended for use in content difference detection algorithms, to produce an EditList of Edit instances describing how two Sequence instances differ. To be compared against another Sequence of the same type, a supporting SequenceComparator must also be supplied.
