AtomicReference getOpaque() method in Java with Examples

The getOpaque() method of a AtomicReference class is used to return the current value of AtomicReference object, with memory effects as specified by VarHandle.getOpaque(java.lang.Object…). This VarHandle.getOpaque(java.lang.Object…) method handles operation with no assurance of memory ordering effects with respect to other threads.

Syntax:

public final V getOpaque()

Parameters: This method accepts nothing.

Return value: This method returns the value of AtomicReference.

Below programs illustrate the getOpaque() method:
