Object oriented concepts and language constructs such as inheritance, interface, nested classes, exceptions, generics, lambda expressions and streams. Important general interfaces such as Iterable, Comparable and Comparator. Common abstract data types such as lists, stacks, FIFO queues, priority queues, sets, and map sand their corresponding interfaces and classes in the Java API. Data structures such as linked lists, binary trees, heaps, and hash tables, and how they can be used to implement fundamental abstract data types.
