The spliterator() method of ArrayDeque returns a Spliterator of the same elements as ArrayDeque but created Spliterator is late-binding and fail-fast. A late-binding Spliterator binds to the source of elements means ArrayDeque at the point of first traversal, first split, or first query for estimated size, rather than at the time the Spliterator is created. It can be used with Streams in Java 8. Also it can traverse elements individually and in bulk too. Spliterator is better way to traverse over element because it provides more control on elements.
public Spliterator<E> spliterator()
Returns: This method returns a Spliterator over the elements in ArrayDeque.
Below programs illustrate spliterator() method of ArrayDeque:
