Confirmation of Java Class Data Structure Code

    I need to know if my data structure classes have been properly created to accomplish the following:

    I am trying to represent a matrix as a 1-dimensional array of Lists. Each List will represent one row of the Matrix, but only the non-zero entries will be stored. List elements must store the matrix entries and its column location. For example, the matrix below would have the following representation as an array of Lists. | 0.0 4.0 5.0 | M = | 3.0 0.0 0.0 | | 1.0 0.0 2.0 |

                                1: (1, 1.0) (3, 2.0)

    Array of Lists = 2: (1, 3.0) 3: (2, 4.0) (3, 5.0)

    I have created two classes in different ADT files: The Matrix class and the List class. The goal is to create a two dimensional matrix as an array of Lists of Entry Objects. More specifically, the Matrix will be an array of deque linked list of Entry Objects. Only non-zero entries will be stored in the Matrix class. Therefore, the linked list (representing the rows of the matrix) is dynamically created since the entries of the matrix can be entered in any order. Entries are identified by their row, column, and value attributes. code: class Matrix { private class Entry { int col; double val;

      // Entry Constructor
      Entry (int c, double v) {
         this.col = c; this.val = v;

    } } code: class List { private class Node { Object obj; Node next, prev;

      // Node Constructor
      Node (Object o) { this.obj = o; next = prev = null; }


    // List Fields private Node front, back, current; private int row, length;

    // List Constructor List(int r) { front = back = current = null; this.row = r; this.length = 0; } }
