JDSL is the Data Structures Library in Java. It is a collection of
Java interfaces and classes that implement fundamental data structures
and algorithms, such as:
- sequences, trees, priority queues, search trees, hash tables
- sorting and searching algorithms
- graph traversals, shortest path, minimum spanning tree
A unique feature of JDSL is the concept of accessors, which allow
powerful but safe operations on the internal representation of a
data structure. Accessors are a generalization of iterators (iterators are
also provided, for simple cases when sequential access is sufficient).
JDSL includes some 10 concrete data types and 30 utility and
accessor classes. Each meets one or more of about 40 interfaces, with
some 200 methods among them. The library was designed so that
programming can be done through interfaces only, with knowledge
of specific implementations necessary only for specialized applications.
The current version of JDSL requires the Java 2 SDK v. 1.4.
The development of JDSL has been supported in part by grant
CCR-0098068 from the National Science Foundation.
