If you're looking for documentation on the Java Collections framework, try this Sun tutorial. If you're looking for a book that covers data structures and related algorithms in a broader sense, I'd recommend Data Structures and Algorithms in Java (2nd Edition) by Robert LaFore.

I think this book is quite useful. It covers both generics and the Java collections.

But as always be sure to check it out carefully before you buy so you know it corresponds to your specific needs.
