Data Structures and Algorithms in Java by Adam Drozdek has a lot of actual code that works. I think the code is online, but the book is worth buying because things are explained well (

Now, while, CLRSS is the gold standard (Joshua Bloch cites it in his Java Collections code) be aware it's math heavy and lacking on implementation details. Rumor was that there was a CD of CLRSS examples somewhere...
