Abstract. This document contains a full report on the Profiling Collections in Java project. The project focuses on the development of a tool that profiles the use of different implementations of the Collection interface in Java and allows us to analyse their use with regards to efficiency. It is our hypothesis that the efficiency, and therefore performance, of software may suffer as a result of poor decisions made by the developer when choosing which Collection implementations to use in their code. Our profiling tool will allow us to determine whether or not this is true.
