Data Structures and Other Objects Using Java, 3e
Michael Main, University of Colorado at Boulder
Michael Main’s gentle approach to data structures and objects has introduced thousands of students to the foundations of data structures.
Following an early review of object-oriented programming, each data type is introduced using a consistent five-step method–understanding the data type abstractly, writing a specification, using the data type, designing and implementing the data type, and analyzing the implementation. In this way, readers learn to think analytically about the efficiency and efficacy of design while gaining exposure to useful Java classes libraries.
This Third Edition makes the most of the enhancements of Java 5.0 including:
- Generic and enumerated data types
- New forms of for-loops for use with arrays, collections and enumerated types
- Autoboxing and unboxing for conversion between primitive values and wrappers
- Methods with a variable number of arguments
- Input/output features
- Java subtypes and covariant return values
