delete occurences of object having simlar property

Posted by sachin_chat (sachin_chat), 4 July 2006
i am having a vectors which has many elements like
scratchA:MYRAMA:rama:t0001p1.qo@proc_0:H
scratchA:MYRAMA:rama:t0001p1.qo@proc_0:H
scratchB:MYRAMB:ramb:t0001p2.qo@proc_0:M

i want to delete all objects which have string value common like 1 and 2 above. for this i had written some thing like this
for(int k = 0;k < cycleEvents.size();k++){
    if(Temp_count.equalsIgnoreCase((String)(((CacheCycleEvent)cycleEvents.get(k)).getVarModSegName()))){
       cycleEvents.remove(k);
    }
   }
here temp_count consist of above string. the problem here is if i do remove(k), the string at k+1 will become k, so it will not be deleted sa value of k has been incremented.
how can i do this in simple way?

Use a while loop that increments k only if an item is NOT removed - something like

Code:
int k=0;
while (k < cycleEvents.size()){
if(Temp_count.equalsIgnoreCase((String)(((CacheCycleEvent)cycleEvents.ge t(k)).getVarModSegName()))){
  cycleEvents.remove(k);  
    } else {
k++;
}
}
