Hello everyone,

I have been tasked with implementing a Disk Read Scheduling Program using Java and I'm hoping to get advice from anyone who has done this before or has experience with it. FIFO is currently used and to improve on this the algorithms I've looked at are: SSTF, Scan and C-Scan.

From researching these algorithms I am leaning towards SSTF, being a direct improvement upon FIFO. Also I'll have to factor in the potential difficulty of writing each algorithm as I haven't attempted anything like this before (also Collection Classes can't be used, i.e. ArrayLists).

I'm looking to get a few extra opinions on what algorithm would be an improvement and also not too complicated to code. I'm definitely not an expert in this area so opinions are welcome!

Thanks
