  • Last Updated : 26 Nov, 2018
Geek Week

The element() method of AbstractQueue retrieves, but does not remove, the head of this queue.

Syntax:

public E element()

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameters.

Returns: The method returns the head of the Queue.

Exception: The function throws an NoSuchElementException if the queue is empty.



Below programs illustrate element() method:

Program 1:




// Java program to illustrate the
// AbstractQueue element() method
import java.util.*;
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingQueue;
  
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
        throws Exception
    {
        // Creating object of AbstractQueue<Integer>
        AbstractQueue<Integer>
            AQ1 = new LinkedBlockingQueue<Integer>();
  
        // Populating AQ1
        AQ1.add(10);
        AQ1.add(20);
        AQ1.add(30);
        AQ1.add(40);
        AQ1.add(50);
  
        // print AQ
        System.out.println("AbstractQueue1 contains : " + AQ1);
  
        System.out.println("head : " + AQ1.element());
    }
}
Output:
AbstractQueue1 contains : [10, 20, 30, 40, 50]
head : 10

Program 2:




// Java program to illustrate the
// AbstractQueue element() method
// NoSuchElementException
import java.util.*;
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingQueue;
  
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
        throws Exception
    {
        try {
            // Creating object of AbstractQueue<Integer>
            AbstractQueue<Integer>
                AQ1 = new LinkedBlockingQueue<Integer>();
  
            System.out.println("AbstractQueue1 : " + AQ1.element());
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println("Exception is" + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
Exception isjava.util.NoSuchElementException
