The updated and revised Object-Oriented Data Structures Using Java, Fourth Edition is an essential resource for students learning data structures using the Java programming language.
The primary goal of authors, Nell Dale, Daniel T. Joyce and Chip Weems, is to present both the traditional and modern data structure topics with an emphasis on problem solving and software design. Beginning early and continuing throughout the text, it introduces and expands upon the use of many Java features such as classes, objects, generics, polymorphism, packages, interfaces, library classes, inheritance, exceptions, and threads.
The fourth edition represents a major revision of the text's material, although the philosophy and style that our loyal adopters have grown to appreciate remain unchanged.
