This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
So I am now labouring over the Java syntax and grammar for the Collections Framework, learning how to use ArrayList et al, and I'm wondering why would I use arrays anymore? Every new programmer must go through this, I'm wondering if someone here might post a couple bulletpoints on when to use the humble array instead of the more convenient ArrayList.
Does anyone have a link to a treatment on the subject of when to use what?
Knowing how is not enough, one has to know when and why.
