K&B book says that LinkedHashSet can be used as LRU cache as you can specify whether it should preserve the order of insertion or order of last access. However the Java 1.4 API doesn't say so? Java 1.4 API says that only the LinkedHashMap can be used as LRU because there you can specify the order we want (insertion/last access)?
Am I correct?

Deep -
Yup - it's a known error - this will be listed on the updated errata page, sorry.

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!
