Java Software Structures teaches CS2 students how to develop high quality software systems that will withstand the test of users and the test of time. The authors provide a consistent presentation of data structures, starting with a conceptual overview and moving through an explanation of each data structure's usefulness. Various approaches to implementing each data structure are also explored along with a list of the Pros and Cons for each implementation. Good software engineering practices are kept on the front lines of discussion when it comes to the more complicated data structures. The book is designed to be flexible, allowing professors to cover the collections and issues they want to stress. - Provides a consistent, easy-to-follow presentation of data structures. - Presents material in a flexible way, professors can choose what they want to stress. - Utilizes the graphical user interface in such a way that instructors who dont cover GUIs can skip over these examples easily. - Strong focus on software engineering concepts throughout the text. - Reviews key language concepts in an appendix. - Perfect follow-up to Lewis/Loftus, Java Software Solutions. - Complete supplements pa
