AtomicReferenceArray set() method in Java with Examples

The set() method of a AtomicReferenceArray class is used to set the value of the element at index i to newValue. Both index i and newValue are passed as parameters to the method. This method set the value with memory semantics of reading as if the variable was declared volatile type of variable.

Syntax:

public final void set(int i, E newValue)

Parameters: This method accepts:

  • i which is an index of AtomicReferenceArray to perform the operation,
  • newValue which is the new value to set.

Return value: This method returns nothing.

Below programs illustrate the set() method:

        // set some value and print
        ref.set(0, 2345);
        ref.set(1, 543);
        ref.set(2, 322);
  
        System.out.println("Value of index 0 = "
                           + ref.get(0));
        System.out.println("Value of index 1 = "
                           + ref.get(1));
        System.out.println("Value of index 2 = "
                           + ref.get(2));
    }
}
