ConcurrentLinkedQueue offer() method in Java

The offer() method of ConcurrentLinkedQueue is used to insert the element, passed as parameter, at the tail of this ConcurrentLinkedQueue. This method returns True if insertion is successful. ConcurrentLinkedQueue is unbounded, so this method offer() will never returns false.

Syntax:

public boolean offer(E e)

Parameter: This method takes a single parameter e which represents the element we want to insert into this ConcurrentLinkedQueue.



Returns: This method returns true after successful insertion of element.

Exception: This method throws NullPointerException if the specified element is null.

Below programs illustrate offer() method of ConcurrentLinkedQueue:

Example 1: To demonstrate offer() method of ConcurrentLinkedQueue to add String.

        // create an ConcurrentLinkedQueue
        ConcurrentLinkedQueue<String>
            queue = new ConcurrentLinkedQueue<String>();
  
        // Add String to queue using offer() method
        queue.offer("Aman");
        queue.offer("Amar");
        queue.offer("Sanjeet");
        queue.offer("Rabi");
  
        // Displaying the existing ConcurrentLinkedQueue
        System.out.println("ConcurrentLinkedQueue: " + queue);
    }
}

Output:

ConcurrentLinkedQueue: [Aman, Amar, Sanjeet, Rabi]
