Java Collections Framework offers these benefits:
- Reducing the efforts of Programming: Useful data structures and algorithms are present in Collection Framework. Built in data structures time and efforts of a programmer gets reduced. It also allows you interoperability to the other APIs. There is no need of conversion codes or writing of the adapter objects.
- Increase speed and quality of program: Higher quality algorithms, high performance and data structures are provided by the Java collection Framework. Application gets tuned by switching of the implementations of collections. This makes you free to write customized codes or algorithms. More time is provided to do the improvement of your program.
- Interoperability b/w APIs: With various APIs, collection interfaces might operate efficiently. If node name collection is furnished by network administration API or if column heading is expected by GUI toolkit, API seamlessly will be interoperated, even they were independently written.
- Lesser effort for learning and using new APIs: There is no need present of learning newer APIs. Collection interfaces are taken as an input by APIs and furnish as output.
