Searching Algorithms are designed to check for an element or retrieve an element from any data structure where it is stored. Based on the type of search operation, these algorithms are generally classified into two categories:

**Sequential Search:**In this, the list or array is traversed sequentially and every element is checked. For Example: Linear Search.**Interval Search:**These algorithms are specifically designed for searching in sorted data-structures. These type of searching algorithms are much more efficient than Linear Search as they repeatedly target the center of the search structure and divide the search space in half. For Example: Binary Search.

**Linear Search****:** The idea is to traverse the given array **arr[]** and find the index at which the element is present. Below are the steps:

- Let the element to be search be
**x**. - Start from the leftmost element of
**arr[]**and one by one compare**x**with each element of**arr[]**. - If x matches with an element then return that
**index**. - If x doesn’t match with any of elements then return -1.

OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.

In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

According to some surveys, such as JetBrains’s great survey, Java 8 is currently the most used version of Java, despite being a 2014 release.

What you are reading is one in a series of articles titled ‘Going beyond Java 8,’ inspired by the contents of my book, Java for Aliens. These articles will guide you step-by-step through the most important features introduced to the language, starting from version 9. The aim is to make you aware of how important it is to move forward from Java 8, explaining the enormous advantages that the latest versions of the language offer.

In this article, we will talk about the most important new feature introduced with Java 10. Officially called **local variable type inference**, this feature is better known as the **introduction of the word **`var`

. Despite the complicated name, it is actually quite a simple feature to use. However, some observations need to be made before we can see the impact that the introduction of the word `var`

has on other pre-existing characteristics.

**A*** is a heuristic path searching graph algorithm. This means that given a weighed graph, it outputs the shortest path between two given nodes.

The algorithm is guaranteed to terminate for finite graphs with non-negative edge weights. Additionally, if you manage to ensure certain properties when designing your **heuristic** it will also always return an almost-optimal solution in a pretty efficient manner.

Ais a method which is constructed to guide us to the optimal solution most of the time, which means we trade in some accuracy for a lot of speed (if the heuristic is well constructed).heuristic

In this article, we’ll go over:

- Some characteristics that we aim to have in our heuristic search algorithms in general.
