This class is the opposite of the AbstractList class in the sense
that it implements the "random access" methods (get(int index),
set(int index, E element), add(int index, E element) and
remove(int index)) on top of the list's list iterator, instead of
the other way around.
To implement a list the programmer needs only to extend this class and
provide implementations for the listIterator and size
methods. For an unmodifiable list, the programmer need only implement the
list iterator's hasNext, next, hasPrevious,
previous and index methods.
For a modifiable list the programmer should additionally implement the list
iterator's set method. For a variable-size list the programmer
should additionally implement the list iterator's remove and
The programmer should generally provide a void (no argument) and collection
constructor, as per the recommendation in the Collection interface
This class is a member of the
Java Collections Framework.
