The clear() method of CopyOnWriteArrayList erases all the elements in the list. The size of the list becomes zero after the function is called.

Syntax:

public void clear()

Parameters: The function does not accept any parameters.

Return Value: The function does not returns anything.

Below programs illustrate the above function:

Program 1:




// Java Program to illustrate the CopyOnWriteArrayList
// clear() method in Java
import java.util.concurrent.CopyOnWriteArrayList;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create object of CopyOnWriteArrayList
        CopyOnWriteArrayList<Integer> ArrLis
            = new CopyOnWriteArrayList<Integer>();
  
        // Add elements
        ArrLis.add(32);
        ArrLis.add(67);
        ArrLis.add(98);
        ArrLis.add(100);
  
        // print CopyOnWriteArrayList
        System.out.println("CopyOnWriteArrayList: " 
                                            + ArrLis);
  
        ArrLis.clear();
  
        System.out.println("CopyOnWriteArrayList: " 
                                         + ArrLis);
    }
}

Output:

CopyOnWriteArrayList: [32, 67, 98, 100]
CopyOnWriteArrayList: []

Program 2:




// Java Program to illustrate the CopyOnWriteArrayList
// clear() method in Java
import java.util.concurrent.CopyOnWriteArrayList;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create object of CopyOnWriteArrayList
        CopyOnWriteArrayList<String> ArrLis
            = new CopyOnWriteArrayList<String>();
  
        // Add elements
        ArrLis.add("gopal");
        ArrLis.add("gfg");
        ArrLis.add("jgec");
        ArrLis.add("sudo");
  
        // print CopyOnWriteArrayList
        System.out.println("CopyOnWriteArrayList: " 
                                          + ArrLis);
  
        ArrLis.clear();
  
        System.out.println("CopyOnWriteArrayList: " 
                                         + ArrLis);
    }
}

Output:

CopyOnWriteArrayList: [gopal, gfg, jgec, sudo]
CopyOnWriteArrayList: []
