AbstractSequentialList in Java with Examples

The AbstractSequentialList class in Java is a part of the Java Collection Framework and implements the Collection interface and the AbstractCollection class. It is used to implement an unmodifiable list, for which one needs to only extend this AbstractList Class and implement only the get() and the size() methods.

This class provides a skeletal implementation of the List interface to minimize the effort required to implement this interface backed by a “sequential access” data store (such as a linked list). For random access data (such as an array), AbstractList should be used in preference to this class.

Class Hierarchy: 

java.lang.Object
 ↳ java.util.AbstractCollection<E>
    ↳ java.util.AbstractList<E>
      ↳ java.util.AbstractSequentialList<E>

Declaration: 

public abstract class AbstractSequentialList<E>
    extends AbstractList<E>

Where E is the type of element maintained by this List.

It implements Iterable<E>, Collection<E>, List<E> interfaces. LinkedList is the only direct subclass of AbstractSequentialList.



Constructor: protected AbstractSequentialList() The default constructor, but being protected, it doesn’t allow to create an AbstractSequentialList object.

AbstractSequentialList<E> asl = new LinkedList<E>();  

Example 1:  AbstractSequentialList is an abstract class, so it should be assigned an instance of its subclass such as LinkedList.

Output:

AbstractSequentialList: [Geeks, for, Geeks, 10, 20]
Final List: [Geeks, for, Geeks, 20]
The element is: Geeks
