Bag, IntBag, DoubleBag Bag is an extensible Object array with public access. Significantly (3-4 times) faster than ArrayList or Vector. Bag is a subclass of Collection. IntBag and DoubleBag are extensible arrays of integers and doubles.
Double2D, Double3D, Int2D, Int3D Immutable x,y or x,y,z tuples. These classes are used extensively to describe locations of objects. We use them rather than java.awt.Point etc. because you need an immutable class to work properly with a hashtable. Our tuples have better hash algorithms as well.
MutableDouble2D, MutableDouble3D, MutableInt2D, MutableInt3D Mutable versions of Double2D, Double3D, Int2D, and Int3D. Instances of these classes hash to the same value as their immutable cousins, and so can be used to look up objects stored by their cousins in hash tables (though you wouldn't use a Mutable version as a key store a value in a hash table).
Interval A class for specifying full-open intervals between two double values or two long values.

Objects can be declared Proxiable, meaning that they offer to the Properties object a proxy to examine instead of the objects themselves.
