ArrayBlockingQueue remainingCapacity() Method in Java

ArrayBlockingQueue is bounded, blocking queue that stores the elements internally backed by an array.

  • ArrayBlockingQueue class is a member of the Java Collections Framework.
  • Bounded means it will have a fixed size, you can not store number the elements more than the capacity of the queue.
  • The queue also follows FIFO (first-in-first-out) rule for storing and removing elements from the queue.
  • If you try to put an element into a full queue or to take an element from an empty queue then the queue will block you.

The remainingCapacity() method returns number of more elements that can be added to queue without blocking. This is always equal to difference between the initial capacity of this queue and the current size of this queue.

Syntax:

public int remainingCapacity()

Parameters: The method does not take any parameters.

Return Value: The method returns the remaining capacity of the queue.

        // Print queue after adding numbers
        System.out.println("Queue :" + queue);
        // Check remaining capacity
        int remainingCapacity = queue.remainingCapacity();
        System.out.println("Remaining Capacity:"
                                       remainingCapacity);
  
        // Add elements to ArrayBlockingQueue
        queue.add(54);
        queue.add(78);
  
        // Print queue after adding numbers
        System.out.println("Queue :" + queue);
        // Check remaining capacity
        System.out.println("Remaining Capacity:"
                               queue.remainingCapacity());
    }
}

Output:

Queue :[23, 32]
Remaining Capacity:3
Queue :[23, 32, 54, 78]
