 package com.sleepycat.bind.tuple;
A concrete TupleBinding for an unsorted Long primitive wrapper or an unsorted long primitive, that stores the value in the smallest number of bytes possible.

There are two ways to use this class:

  1. When using the package directly, the static methods in this class can be used to convert between primitive values and objects.
  2. When using the com.sleepycat.collections package, an instance of this class can be used with any stored collection.
