ArrayDeque offer() Method in Java

The Java.util.ArrayDeque.offer(Object element) method in Java is used to add a specific element at the end of the Deque. The function is similar to the offerLast() method of ArrayDeque in Java.

Syntax:

Array_Deque.offer(Object element)

Parameters: The parameter element is of the type ArrayDeque and refers to the element to be added at the end of the Deque.

Return Value: The function returns True if the element is successfully added into the deque else it returns false.

Exceptions: The method throws NullPointerException if the passed parameter is NULL.

        Deque<String> de_que = new ArrayDeque<String>();
  
        // Use add() method to add elements into the Deque
        de_que.add("Welcome");
        de_que.add("To");
        de_que.add("Geeks");
        de_que.add("4");
        de_que.add("Geeks");
  
        // Displaying the ArrayDeque
        System.out.println("Initial Deque: " + de_que);
  
        // Using offer() to add elements
        de_que.offer("Hello");
        de_que.offer("World");
  
        // Displaying the ArrayDeque
        System.out.println("Final Deque: " + de_que);
    }
}
