ArrayBlockingQueue iterator() Method in Java

The iterator() method of ArrayBlockingQueue class is used to returns an iterator of the same elements as this queue in a proper sequence. The elements returned from this method contains elements in order from first(head) to last(tail). The returned iterator is weakly consistent.

Syntax:

public Iterator iterator()

Return Value: The method returns the iterator having same elements as present in ArrayBlockingQueue in proper sequence.

Below programs illustrates iterator() method of ArrayBlockingQueue class:

        // Print queue
        System.out.println("Queue is " + queue);
  
        // Call iterator() method and Create an iterator
        Iterator iteratorValues = queue.iterator();
  
        // Print elements of iterator
        System.out.println("\nThe iterator values:");
        while (iteratorValues.hasNext()) {
            System.out.println(iteratorValues.next());
        }
    }
}

Output:

Queue is [423, 422, 421, 420, 424]

The iterator values:
423
422
421
420
424
