ConcurrentLinkedQueue remove() method in Java
  • Last Updated : 26 Nov, 2018

The remove(Object o) method of ConcurrentLinkedQueue is used to remove a single instance of the specified element from this ConcurrentLinkedQueue, if it is present. This method removes an element e such that o.equals(e) if this ConcurrentLinkedQueue contains one or more such elements. Remove() method returns true if this ConcurrentLinkedQueue contained the specified element else it will return false.

Syntax:

public boolean remove(Object o)

Parameter: This method takes a parameter o which represent element to be removed from this ConcurrentLinkedQueue.

Returns: This method returns true if this ConcurrentLinkedQueue contained the specified element and removed.

Below programs illustrate remove() method of ConcurrentLinkedQueue:



Example 1:




// Java Program Demonstrate remove()
// method of ConcurrentLinkedQueue
  
import java.util.concurrent.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create an ConcurrentLinkedQueue
        ConcurrentLinkedQueue<Integer>
            queue = new ConcurrentLinkedQueue<Integer>();
  
        // Add Numbers to queue
        queue.add(4353);
        queue.add(7824);
        queue.add(78249);
        queue.add(8724);
  
        // Displaying the existing ConcurrentLinkedQueue
        System.out.println("ConcurrentLinkedQueue: " + queue);
  
        // apply remove() for Number 78249
        boolean response = queue.remove(78249);
  
        // print results
        System.out.println("Removing Number 78249 successful: " + response);
  
        // Displaying the existing ConcurrentLinkedQueue
        System.out.println("Updated ConcurrentLinkedQueue: " + queue);
    }
}
Output:
ConcurrentLinkedQueue: [4353, 7824, 78249, 8724]
Removing Number 78249 successful: true
Updated ConcurrentLinkedQueue: [4353, 7824, 8724]

Example 2:




// Java Program Demonstrate remove()
// method of ConcurrentLinkedQueue
  
import java.util.concurrent.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create an ConcurrentLinkedQueue
        ConcurrentLinkedQueue<String>
            queue = new ConcurrentLinkedQueue<String>();
  
        // Add String to queue
        queue.add("Aman");
        queue.add("Amar");
        queue.add("Sanjeet");
        queue.add("Rabi");
  
        // Displaying the existing ConcurrentLinkedQueue
        System.out.println("ConcurrentLinkedQueue: " + queue);
  
        // apply remove() on queue
        boolean response1 = queue.remove("Aman");
  
        // print after applying poll method
        System.out.println("Removing String \"Aman\" successful: " + response1);
  
        // Displaying the existing ConcurrentLinkedQueue
        System.out.println("Updated ConcurrentLinkedQueue: " + queue);
  
        // apply remove() on queue
        boolean response2 = queue.remove("Kisan");
  
        // print after applying poll method
        System.out.println("Removing String \"Kisan\" successful: " + response2);
  
        // Displaying the existing ConcurrentLinkedQueue
        System.out.println("Updated ConcurrentLinkedQueue: " + queue);
    }
}
Output:
ConcurrentLinkedQueue: [Aman, Amar, Sanjeet, Rabi]
Removing String "Aman" successful: true
Updated ConcurrentLinkedQueue: [Amar, Sanjeet, Rabi]
Removing String "Kisan" successful: false
Updated ConcurrentLinkedQueue: [Amar, Sanjeet, Rabi]
