Hi folks,

I am preparing for SCJP 1.5 exam.

I am kind of feeling difficult in understanding appropriate usage of collections based on scenarios. Not only for exams, but during application development also I would like to know the same. Also, what is the advantages/disadvantages of each of them.

Could you guys please help me out with this with any pointer or information?

Thanks a lot for your help !!

Regards,
Neo

There are four good articles about the Java Collections (non Generic) framework in our JavaRanch Journal starting here.

They also give a good idea on the choice of the right collection for the job.

I suggest you memorize the collections hierarchy, Although it is hard it is worth it.

Topics covered in Collections in scjp 1.4 are easy. We just need to read it 3-4 times thoroughly.

Thers one solution to your problem.. Please read the Chapter 7 from the book SCJP Exam Study Guide by Kathy & Sierra. Thats an excellent chapter regarding collections. it will teach you what they are, how they work and why they should be used. you will also get the reasons behind appropriate applications of collections for various scenarios. Highly recommended!
