Java

The Collections Framework

Documentation Contents

The collections framework is a unified architecture for representing and manipulating collections, allowing them to be manipulated independently of the details of their representation. It reduces programming effort while increasing performance. It allows for interoperability among unrelated APIs, reduces effort in designing and learning new APIs, and fosters software reuse. The framework is based on fourteen collection interfaces. It includes implementations of these interfaces, and algorithms to manipulate them.
