This paper introduces programming with data structures using Java. It assumes a familiarity with basic object-oriented programming concepts and techniques, as introduced in COMP103 and COMP104 using the C# programming language. Students will learn how to program in Java and become familiar with the design, analysis, and application of commonly-used data structures, including stacks, queues, lists, trees, and sets.
Familiarity with basic data structures and the Java programming language.
