CopyOnWriteArrayList iterator() method in Java

The iterator() method of CopyOnWriteArrayList returns an iterator over the elements in this list in proper sequence. The iterator does NOT support the remove method.

Syntax:

public Iterator iterator()

Parameters: The function does not accept any parameters.



Return Value: The function returns an iterator over the elements in the list.

Below programs illustrate the above function:
