Java 9 Data Structures and Algorithms

By: Debasish Ray Chawdhuri

Overview of this book

Java 9 Data Structures and Algorithms covers classical, functional, and reactive data structures, giving you the ability to understand computational complexity, solve problems, and write efficient code. This book is based on the Zero Bug Bounce milestone of Java 9. We start off with the basics of algorithms and data structures, helping you understand the fundamentals and measure complexity. From here, we introduce you to concepts such as arrays, linked lists, as well as abstract data types such as stacks and queues. Next, we’ll take you through the basics of functional programming while making sure you get used to thinking recursively. We provide plenty of examples along the way to help you understand each concept. You will also get a clear picture of reactive programming, binary searches, sorting, search trees, undirected graphs, and a whole lot more!

Producer-consumer model

A producer-consumer model is a design that divides processing into small components that send messages to other components. One produces a message and the other consumes and acts on it. It provides an abstraction to easily implement an application optimized to utilize all the resources. A producer-consumer model starts with a queue of messages. Producers publish messages in this queue and consumers receive them. This queue is different from the queues we have studied so far in a few ways. We want this queue to be thread-safe, which is required for the queue to work correctly in a multithreaded environment. We do not need to worry about the exact order of the messages being dequeued. After all, the order of messages does not matter when they are being received by different threads. In these conditions, we optimize the delivery of the messages. Before implementing this queue, let's discuss a few thread synchronization techniques beyond what we have learned so far using...
