Intended for use in the Java Data Structures course The fourth edition of Java Software Structures embraces the enhancements of the latest version of Java, where all structures and collections are based on generics. The framework of the text walks the reader through three main areas: conceptualization, explanation, and implementation, allowing for a consistent and coherent introduction to data structures. Students learn how to develop high-quality software systems using well-designed collections and algorithms. Teaching and Learning Experience To provide a better teaching and learning experience, for both instructors and students, this program will: *Apply Theory and/or Research: Three main areas: conceptualization, explanation, and implementation, allow for a consistent and coherent introduction to data structures. *Engage Students: Hands-on optional case studies and new VideoNotes tutorials offer real-world perspective, and keep students interested in the material. *Support Instructors and Students: Instructor Supplemental Support includes PowerPoint presentation slides, Solution Manual, test bank, case studies with source code, and solutions.
