A unique, practical approach to working with collection classes in Java 2 Software developers new to Java will find the practical, software-engineering based approach taken by this book extremely refreshing. With an emphasis more on software design and less on theory, Java Collections explores in detail Java 2 collection classes, helping programmers choose the best collection classes for each application they work on. Watt and Brown explore abstract data types (ADTs) that turn up again and again in software design, using them to provide context for the data structures required for their implementation and the algorithms associated with the data structures. Numerous worked examples, several large case studies, and end-of-chapter exercises are also provided.
