Learn how to troubleshoot and diagnose some of the most common performance issues in Java today. Brought to you in partnership with AppDynamics.

It's Thursday, so it's time for another code puzzler. The idea is simple: solve the coding problem as efficiently as you can, in any language or framework that you find suitable.

Note: Even though there really is nothing stopping you from finding a solution to this on the internet, try to keep honest, and come up with your own answer.  It's all about the participation!

Grouping Anagrams 

Write a method that, when given an array of strings, will group all of the anagrams, and partial anagrams together in their individual arrays. A partial anagram is a word that is composed of characters in another word, although it might not have the same number of characters as the original word. 

For example given [dzone, java, one, node] you would get two arrays: 

[dzone, one, node] and [java].
