AbstractList add(int index, E element) method in Java with Examples

The add(int index, E element) method of AbstractList is used to insert an element at the specified position in this list. The new element is inserted at the specified index in this list.

Syntax:

public void add(int index, E element)

Parameters: This method takes 2 parameters :-



  1. index: index at which the specified element is to be inserted
  2. element: element to be inserted

Returns: The function returns a boolean value True if the element is successfully inserted in the List otherwise it returns False.

Exceptions:The exceptions present are :-

  • ClassCastException: if the class of an element of this set is incompatible with the specified collection
  • NullPointerException: if this set contains a null element and the specified collection does not permit null elements, or if the specified collection is null.
  • UnsupportedOperationException: if the add operation is not supported by this list.
  • IllegalArgumentException: if some property of the specified element prevents it from being added to this list.
  • IndexOutOfBoundsException: if the index is out of range (index size()).
