CopyOnWriteArrayList listIterator() method in Java

  • The listIterator() method of CopyOnWriteArrayList returns an listIterator over the elements in this list in proper sequence. The listIterator does NOT support the remove, set or add methods.

    Syntax:

    public ListIterator listIterator()

    Parameters: The function does not accept any parameters.

    Return Value: The function returns a list iterator over the elements in this list (in proper sequence)



    Below programs illustrate the above function:

            CopyOnWriteArrayList<Integer> ArrLis
                = new CopyOnWriteArrayList<Integer>();
      
            // Add elements
            ArrLis.add(32);
            ArrLis.add(67);
            ArrLis.add(67);
            ArrLis.add(100);
      
            // print CopyOnWriteArrayList
            System.out.println("CopyOnWriteArrayList: " + ArrLis);
      
            // Call listIterator() method of
            Iterator iteratorVals = ArrLis.listIterator();
      
            // Print elements of iterator
            // created from CopyOnWriteArrayList
            System.out.println("The iterator values"
                               + " of CopyOnWriteArrayList are:");
      
            // prints the elements using an iterator
            while (iteratorVals.hasNext()) {
                System.out.println(iteratorVals.next());
            }
        }
    }

    Output:

    CopyOnWriteArrayList: [32, 67, 67, 100]
    The iterator values of CopyOnWriteArrayList are:
    32
    67
    67
    100
    
  • The listIterator(index) method of CopyOnWriteArrayList returns an listIterator over the elements in this list in proper sequence starting from a particular index. The listIterator does NOT support the remove, set or add methods.

    Syntax:

    public ListIterator listIterator(int index)

    Parameters: The function accepts a parameter index which specifies the index of the first element to be returned from the list iterator.

    Return Value: The function returns a list iterator over the elements in this list starting from the specified index (in proper sequence).

    Exceptions: The function throws IndexOutOfBoundsException if the index is out of range.
