to provide inheritance of values from parent thread to child thread: when a child thread is created, the child receives initial values for all inheritable thread-local variables for which the parent has values.
The Input Method interface represents an input method which can generate key events and text, such as digital, email addresses, CJK characters, other language characters, and etc., while handling various input events, and send the text back to the application that requests text input. This class incorrectly assumes that bytes adequately represent characters.
A Drawable is a general abstraction for "something that can be drawn."

This class represents a request to an autofill service to interpret the screen and provide information to the system which views are interesting for saving and what are the possible ways to fill the inputs on the screen if applicable.
This class should not be used directly by applications.
But as you know, when writing your code, an update almost always comes with conditions that have to be checked.
The typical way we’ve been solving this for maps has been by creating if-statements and other imperative code to do checks against the map before actually updating it.
See Recipe 10.6, “Understanding Mutable Variables with Immutable Collections” for more information.
This is Recipe 11.15, “How to Add, Update, and Remove Elements with a Mutable Map” You want to add, remove, or update elements in a mutable map.
