      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Very helpful in Understanding ONLY Generics

    Pros: Very nice examples help us to understand generics and the common mistakes we do in Type casting.
    Cons:Covers Collection in brief. i was expecting much detailed explanation as of generics. Generics Vs Collection ratio is 70 / 30.
    Not a suitable book for those who wants understanding in Collections.

    Java Generics and Collections

    First thing - it is not for the beginner.

    Having said that, we developers use many classes and interfaces from collection APi without fully realizing why some collection is designed so etc. This book covers in detail what is a generic, traps and pitfalls in detail like no other book does.

    Each of the major collections and how these internally work are explained to the core again like no other java book does.

    I am sure you wont get everything from your first reading, but this one is a treas...

    Good book to understand generics

    If you want a good in depth understanding in Java generics, this book is for you. This book is not for those who are new to Java.

    Type theory for Java nerds

    This is an awesome book on Java types. It took only a single read to understand what boxing and unboxing is. Elegant. And you know the authors, pretty cool people. There might be a second edition to this book explaining Java closures and lambdas. But I would recommend this for any Java enthusiast to add it to your collection.
