What are the drawbacks of collections in .net ?

 Posted by Bharathi Cherukuri on 6/5/2012 | Category: ASP.NET Interview questions | Views: 2329 | Points: 40

The drawbacks of collections in .net are:

1. Performance will be low as they store each and every member as an object
2. Incorrect parsing throws runtime "Invalid Cast" exception
Examples of System.Collections: Array List, Hash Table, Stack, Queue
Note: System.Collections.Generic came up in .NET 2.0 to overcome the drawbacks of collections.
