Overview

The Collections Framework is supplied with all versions of the Java 2 platform and provides programmers with incredibly efficient ways to manipulate data. However, given the large number of methods and classes in this library, using them correctly is hardly a cakewalk. Well-known columnist and bestselling author John Zukowski gives the Java professional exactly what he or she needs to know about this vital library in order to maximize productivity. This practical book contains comprehensive coverage of the important Collections Framework from the working programmer's point of view, while staying away from academic abstractions.

Java Collections leads you through the standard Java support for maintaining abstract groups of data, from the historical collection classes available since the inception of Java time, through the Collections Framework introduced with the Java 2 platform, and on to third-party alternative libraries for times when the standard support isn't enough. If you're working with data in Java programs, you need to understand the Collections Framework. Let Zukowski's Java Collections be your guide!

This book is well organized and is an easy to use reference. It has in-depth coverage of collection classes and their uses. Code examples are made very simple to understand and easy to follow because of UML(pictorial) representation. For advance developers, it's good to learn about the common mistake. The sections on each collection interface and implementation form a great reference. You would learn to create multimaps and priority queues, through real world best examples. The book also offers tips on choosing an appropriate data collection type. Material on how different collections interact with threading particularly useful.
