  • Last Updated : 29 Jun, 2021

The getAcquire() method of a AtomicReference class is used to return the value of this AtomicReference object with memory ordering effects on getting variable is compatible with memory_order_acquire ordering.

Syntax: 

public final V getAcquire()

Parameters: This method accepts nothing.
Return value: This method returns the current value of this AtomicReference object with memory ordering effects.

Below programs illustrate the get() method:

Program 1:  



Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// AtomicReference.getAcquire() method
 
import java.util.concurrent.atomic.AtomicReference;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // create an atomic reference object
        // which stores Integer.
        AtomicReference<Integer> ref
            = new AtomicReference<Integer>();
 
        // set some value
        ref.set(1632798372);
 
        // apply getAcquire() and print value
        int value = ref.getAcquire();
        System.out.println("value  = " + value);
    }
}

Output:

Program 2: 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// AtomicReference.get() method
import java.util.concurrent.atomic.AtomicReference;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
 
        // create an atomic reference object
        // which stores String.
        AtomicReference<String> ref
            = new AtomicReference<String>();
 
        // set some value
        ref.set("WELCOME TO "
                + "GEEKS FOR GEEKS"
                + " LERAN AND APPLY");
 
        // apply getAcquire and print value
        String value = ref.getAcquire();
        System.out.println(value);
