he Java Tutorial is hands-on Java programming language guide that is perfect for any developer looking for a proven path to proficiency with Java SE. This popular tutorial "from the Source" has been completely revised and updated to cover Version 6 of the Java Platform, Standard Edition. Written by members of the Java Software team at Sun Microsystems, this book uses a tested, interactive approach and features real-world problems that help you learn the Java platform by example.

New to this edition are chapters on generics, collections, Java Web Start, the platform environment, and regular expressions. Key sections, including the Threads, I/O, Object-Oriented Programming Concepts, and Language Basics chapters have been completely rewritten to reflect reader feedback and to cover new features added to the Java SE 6 platform. A new appendix contains information on how to prepare for the Java Programming Language Certification exam. Author Sharon Zakhour is a senior technical writer who supports the Swing, AWT, and JDNC teams at Sun Microsystems, where she has worked since 1999. She graduated with a B.A. in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley, and has worked as a programmer, developer support engineer, and technical writer for 18 years.

Chapter 11 describes the Java Collections Framework. Here you will learn what collections are and how they can make your job easier and programs better. You’ll learn about the core elements—interfaces, implementations, and algorithms—that comprise the Java Collections Framework. Download the PDF of Chapter 11: Collections
