AtomicReferenceArray getAndAccumulate() method in Java with Examples

The getAndAccumulate() method of a AtomicReferenceArray class is used to atomically updates the element at index i of AtomicReferenceArray with the results of applying the given accumulatorFunction to the current and given values and returns the previous value. The accumulatorFunction should be side-effect-free, since it may be re-applied when attempted updates fail due to contention among threads. The function is applied with the current value at index i as its first argument, and the given update as the second argument.

Syntax:

public final E getAndAccumulate(int i, E x,
     BinaryOperator<E> accumulatorFunction)

Parameters: This method accepts:

  • i which is an index of AtomicReferenceArray to perform the operation accepts,
  • x which is the updated value and
  • accumulatorFunction which is a side-effect-free function of two arguments.

Return value: This method returns the previous value.

Below programs illustrate the getAndAccumulate() method:
