Hello All, I am kindda confuse and to why you all say not using Vector. I mean the reason I would want to use Vector is it is synchorinized. Yep it is slower than List or ArrayList. Also ArrayList is not synchronized. So using Vector when we have to watch out for synchronization of data makes sense. Let me know! -Amish
Hi Amish, You can create a synchronized version thus:
But you are usually better off just creating the List unsynchronized and protecting it by syncrhonizing the methods that access or modify it. I don't think thread-safety is a good enough argument to use a stale class when there are much better alternatives.
