BlockingDeque take() method in Java with Examples

The take() method of BlockingDeque returns and removes the head of the Deque container from it. The method throws an InterruptedException if it is interrupted while waiting.

Syntax:

public E take()

Returns: This method returns the head of the Deque container.



Exception: The function throws a InterruptedException if it is interrupted while waiting.

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

Below programs illustrate take() method of BlockingDeque:

        // print Deque
        System.out.println("Blocking Deque: " + BD);
  
        // removes the front element and prints it
        System.out.println("Head of Blocking Deque: "
                           + BD.take());
  
        // prints the Deque
        System.out.println("Blocking Deque: " + BD);
    }

Output:

Blocking Deque: [7855642, 35658786, 5278367, 74381793]
Head of Blocking Deque: 7855642
Blocking Deque: [35658786, 5278367, 74381793]
