How to design a LinkedList ?

To design a Linked List we normally need to design three classes one class for Node that contains a data and link to the next node.

Second class contain a big picture as a combination of nodes where one can view the number of nodes  as well as design functions for it.

Third class contains operations or the methods that we want to perform on the linked lists.This class contains main method and is driving whole mechanism.



Basic Structure of Node:-

Data represent the value and next represent the link to other nodes.

package com.problems.list;

public class Node {
 int data;
 Node next;
 


 public Node()
 {
  data=0;
  next=null;
 }
 
 public Node(int data)
 {
  this.data=data;
  next=null;
 }
 
 public Node(int data,Node node)
 {
  this.data=data;
  this.next=node;
 }
 
 public int getData() {
  return data;
 }

 public void setData(int data) {
  this.data = data;
 }

 public Node getNext() {
  return next;
 }

 public void setNext(Node next) {
  this.next = next;
 }

 @Override
 public String toString() {
  return "Node [data=" + data + ", next=" + next + "]";
 }
 
}





Basic Structure of Linked List:-

Length represent the current size of list and head represent the first node.

package com.problems.list;

public class LinkedList {

 public LinkedList() {
  length = 0;
 }
 
 Node head;
 int length;
 public void addNodeStart(LinkedList list,int data)
 {
  Node temp=new Node(data);
  if(list.head==null)
  {
   System.out.println("head is null");
   head=temp;
   length++;
  }
  else{
  
  temp.next=list.head;
  list.head=temp;
  
  }
 }
 
 public void printList(Node head)
 {
  Node temp =head;
  System.out.println("List Data");
  while(temp!=null)
  {
   System.out.print(+temp.data+" ");
   temp=temp.next;
  }
  
 }
}
Basic Functions:-

Here we are creating one list then passing the head(first node) to function for creating the node.In second method we are printing the list.

 public static void main(String[] args)
 {
  LinkedList list=new LinkedList();
  list.addNodeStart(list, 5);
  list.addNodeStart(list, 15);
  list.addNodeStart(list, 25);
  list.printList(list.head);
 }
}

Insertion Sort in JAVA

What is insertion sort?

It is a sorting technique that is based on the partitioning of array into two parts like selection sort, sorted and unsorted.

The process is:-

compare adjacent elements.
if(left > right)
Swap the element
{
check for sorted array whether it is still in sort manner(put j=i and loop in until j is not equal to zero)
- No
check for if(right<left)
swap
do it until at the end of position.
}

Implementation:-

Underline eleemnts are part of sorted arrayinside main array loop 142710333519424 (141027333519424 (here sorted array is distorted hence sorting has been done inside the loop) inside sorted array loop101427333519424 inside main array loop101427333519424 inside main array loop 101427333519424 inside main array loop101427333519424 inside sorted array loop 101427193335424 inside sorted array loop 101419273335424 inside main array loop 101419273335424 inside main array loop 101419273335424 inside sorted array loop101419273343542 inside…
