I used to program in C++ and constructed a linkedlist class (not a very fancy one but just enough to use the head and reference to simply add, and remove data in the list.
now i am learning java and realize that java.util.*; has a class called the linkedList which has all the add , and remove functions and more... my question is, is it true that there is no need to write a LinkedList class in java? all i need to do is use the methods of the already built LinkedList class for data structuring? or if that class acutally has some restriction that writing my own might be recommended.
anyone experienced please advise. thanks a lot.
