public interface Abelian
extends Contract

Contract Marker: Abelian
Description: The Abelian "contract" requires a class to follow the related Std Java contracts for "equal()", "hashCode()", and "toString()" that ALL Java objects are supposed to follow but usually don't! These are detailed in Chapter 3 of "Effective Java" by Joshua Bloch. See that book for complete details and tutorial.
