Frequently Asked Questions

Data structure is the arrangement of data in a program. The arrangement of data determines how a program works and how it will behave. Data structure is one of the most important concepts in programming. It determines the size and complexity of a program, the program’s speed, and the program’s ability to carry out instructions.

Data structures and algorithms are not language-specified and can be used for any programming language Java included.

Programming algorithms is the process of designing programs to carry out specific tasks. Algorithms are sets of instructions describing the steps required to carry out a particular task. An algorithm flowchart is a diagram that shows the sequence of steps in an algorithm. The shape of the flowchart depends on the task being performed.

Some commonly used data structures in Java are:

  • Array
  • Linked list
  • Stack
  • Queue
  • Binary tree
  • Binary search tree
  • Heap
  • Hashing
  • Graph

An algorithm must have the following characteristics:

  • Unambiguous
  • Input
  • Output
  • Finiteness
  • Feasibility
  • Independent

Pseudocode is not a programming language and does not have any specific syntax.
