The putFirst(E e) method of BlockingDeque inserts the specified element at the front of the queue represented by this deque. If the Deque is capacity restricted, then it will wait for the space to become available.
public void putFirst(E e)
Parameters: This method accepts a mandatory parameter e which is the element to be inserted at the front of the BlockingDeque.
Returns: This method does not return anything.
Exceptions: The program throws two exceptions as shown below:
- NullPointerException – if the specified element is null
- InterruptedException – if interrupted while waiting
Note: The putFirst() method of BlockingDeque has been inherited from the LinkedBlockingDeque class in Java.
Below programs illustrate putFirst() method of BlockingDeque:
