The third edition of Java Software Structures embraces the enhancements of the latest version of Java (Java 6, as well as Java 5), where all structures and collections are based on generics. The framework of the text walks the reader through three main areas: conceptualization, explanation, and implementation, allowing for a consistent and coherent introduction to data structures. Students learn how to develop high-quality software systems using well-designed collections and algorithms.
