Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In computer science, a data structure is a particular way of storing and organizing data in a computer so that it can be used efficiently.[1][2] Different kinds of data structures are suited to different kinds of applications, and some are highly specialized to specific tasks. For example, Btrees are particularly wellsuited for implementation of databases, while compiler implementations usually use hash tables to look up identifiers. Data structures provide a means to manage huge amounts of data efficiently, such as large databases and internet indexing services. Usually, efficient data structures are a key to designing efficient algorithms. Some formal design methods and programming languages emphasize data structures, rather than algorithms, as the key organizing factor in software design. Storing and retrieving can be carried out on data stored in both main memory and in secondary memory. Various Data Structures are available that are needed to be employed based on the need.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The ways in which data is stored is called the structure of data. There are many kinds of functions (including hash) in which data is stored in memory. If I can recall correctly, they are: objects, arrays, sets, hashes and records. That's all I know.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, simple. a data structure holds data. They are also known as "collections." Collections are the main class, then comes Lists(ArrayLists,LinkLists) Mappings(HashMap, TreeMap, etc) Arrays, Stacks, Queues, etc.
