Are the topic HashTable and its methods included in the syllabus for SCJP1.5 Exam? The Heller & Roberts book doesn�t discuss these topics.

Also, Do we get questions on Queue<E> interfaces? This too is not discussed in Heller Roberts book.

The Collections Framework & Generics is a very vast topic. Do I need to know each and everything in the generic tutorial pdf file ( on sun website) or what is in Heller Roberts is sufficient for me.

Please guide me.

The syntax is about Generics. The <E> is specifying the class type. Here is a Java Tutorial link on the big topic of Generics:

<e>
it came in java 1.5 it just tell you about the class type like :
so its facilitate to tell about which type of group of object particular set or list have .
so thats why they call as generic and its facilitate you to manipulation too.
because in prior onlu arrays just do it but in java 1.5 we used it with list ,set ,map and.
and it also facilitate the iteration because there is no need to cast the it.next() object to cast in particular object.
