Lists In Java

A List(in the API reference documentation)is an ordered Collection(in the API reference documentation)(sometimes called a sequence). Lists may contain duplicate elements. In addition to the operations inherited from Collection, the List interface includes operations for:

  • Positional Access: manipulate elements based on their numerical position in the list.
  • Search: search for a specified object in the list and return its numerical position.
  • List Iteration: extend Iterator semantics to take advantage of the list's sequential nature.
  • Range-view: perform arbitrary range operations on the list.
