Nope.  The key sentence is: "While there are some design and implementation
differences, the JDK1.2 package contains most of the same basic abstractions,
structure, and functionality as this package."

I.e. it is quite different, though it offers much of the same functionality.
It might help in implementing some of the trickier algorithms and
data structure, but not in implementing the basic interfaces.
