BlockingDeque iterator() method in Java with examples

  • Last Updated : 01 Oct, 2019

The iterator() method of BlockingDeque returns an iterator over the elements in this deque in a proper sequence. The elements will be returned in order from first (head) to last (tail). The returned iterator is a “weakly consistent” iterator.

Syntax:

public Iterator iterator()

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameter.

Returns: This method returns an iterator over the elements in this deque in a proper sequence.

Note: The iterator() method of BlockingDeque has been inherited from the LinkedBlockingDeque class in Java.



Below programs illustrate iterator() method of BlockingDeque:

Program 1:




// Java Program Demonstrate iterator()
// method of BlockingDeque
  
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingDeque;
import java.util.concurrent.BlockingDeque;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
  
    {
  
        // create object of BlockingDeque
        BlockingDeque<Integer> BD
            = new LinkedBlockingDeque<Integer>();
  
        // Add numbers to front of BlockingDeque
        BD.addFirst(7855642);
        BD.addFirst(35658786);
        BD.addFirst(5278367);
        BD.addFirst(74381793);
  
        // Call iterator() method of BlockingDeque
        Iterator iteratorVals = BD.iterator();
  
        // Print elements of iterator
        // created from PriorityBlockingQueue
        System.out.println("The iterator values"
                           + " of BlockingDeque are:");
  
        // prints the elements using an iterator
        while (iteratorVals.hasNext()) {
            System.out.println(iteratorVals.next());
        }
    }
}
Output:
The iterator values of BlockingDeque are:
74381793
5278367
35658786
7855642

Program 2:




// Java Program Demonstrate iterator()
// method of BlockingDeque
// when list is of strings
  
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingDeque;
import java.util.concurrent.BlockingDeque;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
  
    {
  
        // create object of BlockingDeque
        BlockingDeque<String> BD
            = new LinkedBlockingDeque<String>();
  
        // Add numbers to front of BlockingDeque
        BD.add("Geeks");
        BD.add("forGeeks");
        BD.add("A");
        BD.add("Computer");
        BD.add("Portal");
  
        // Call iterator() method of BlockingDeque
        Iterator iteratorVals = BD.iterator();
  
        // Print elements of iterator
        // created from BlockingQueue
        System.out.println("The iterator values"
                           + " of LinkedBlockingDeque are:");
  
        // prints the elements using an iterator
        while (iteratorVals.hasNext()) {
            System.out.println(iteratorVals.next());
        }
    }
}
Output:
The iterator values of BlockingDeque are:
Geeks
forGeeks
A
Computer
Portal
