This video discusses the exercise files for this course.
- [Instructor] If you're a premium member, you'll have access to the exercise files that I use in this course. I have them here in a folder on my desktop called Exercise Files. There's folder for each movie that contains an exercise file, so you can follow along as we explore various features and tools. Inside the folder that corresponds to the movie, I'm including a template file and the finished file for each activity that I use in the course. So you can add the template file to your IDE project folder, your integrated development environment, or open it in a text editor if you're not using an IDE.
The finished file is included as a reference in a separate folder labeled Final. I do want to make sure you understand that these files are just for your convenience. They're not required, they might just make things a little easier when you're following along.
In this course, explore data structures in the Java language. Follow Peggy Fisher as she introduces you to several types of commonly-used data structures in Java. Peggy explores ArrayLists and LinkedLists, both of which implement the List interface, which extends the Collection interface and allows you to access list elements in a specific order. She also goes into the Vector, Stack, and Queue collection classes. To help you better understand these new concepts, Peggy wraps up the course with a challenge—creating a grocery list—and provides a solution for that challenge.
