public boolean addAll(Collection<E> c)

Parameters: This method accepts a parameter c which is the collection containing elements to be added to this set.

Return Value: This method returns a boolean value such as true, if the CopyOnWriteArraySet is changed. Else this method returns false.



Exceptions: This method throws NullPointerException if the specified collection is null.

Below program illustrates the addAll() function of CopyOnWriteArrayList class:

Program 1: In the below program, the specified collection elements are added to the CopyOnWriteArraySet. Since 50 is common in both the collections, it is added single time.




// Java Program to illustrate the
// CopyOnWriteArraySet addall() method in Java
  
import java.util.concurrent.CopyOnWriteArraySet;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create object of CopyOnWriteArraySet
        CopyOnWriteArraySet<Integer> ArrSet
            = new CopyOnWriteArraySet<Integer>();
  
        // Add elements
        ArrSet.add(10);
        ArrSet.add(20);
        ArrSet.add(30);
        ArrSet.add(50);
  
        // print CopyOnWriteArraySet
        System.out.println("CopyOnWriteArraySet: "
                           + ArrSet);
  
        // create object of ArrayList
        ArrayList<Integer> Arrlist
            = new ArrayList<Integer>();
  
        // Add elements
        Arrlist.add(50);
        Arrlist.add(60);
        Arrlist.add(70);
        Arrlist.add(80);
  
        // print ArrayList
        System.out.println("ArrayList:  "
                           + Arrlist);
  
        // adding all elements of Arraylist
        // in the CopyOnWriteArraySet
        ArrSet.addAll(Arrlist);
  
        // print updated CopyOnWriteArraySet
        System.out.println("Updated CopyOnWriteArraySet: "
                           + ArrSet);
    }
}
Output:
CopyOnWriteArraySet: [10, 20, 30, 50]
ArrayList:  [50, 60, 70, 80]
Updated CopyOnWriteArraySet: [10, 20, 30, 50, 60, 70, 80]

Program 2: To show NullpointerException




// Java Program to illustrate the
// CopyOnWriteArraySet addall() method in Java
  
import java.util.concurrent.CopyOnWriteArraySet;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // create object of CopyOnWriteArraySet
        CopyOnWriteArraySet<Integer> ArrSet
            = new CopyOnWriteArraySet<Integer>();
  
        // Add elements
        ArrSet.add(10);
        ArrSet.add(20);
        ArrSet.add(30);
        ArrSet.add(50);
  
        // print CopyOnWriteArraySet
        System.out.println("CopyOnWriteArraySet: "
                           + ArrSet);
  
        // create object of ArrayList
        ArrayList<Integer> Arrlist
            = new ArrayList<Integer>();
  
        try {
  
            // adding null to the CopyOnWriteArraySet
            // This will throw NullPointerException
            ArrSet.addAll(null);
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
CopyOnWriteArraySet: [10, 20, 30, 50]
java.lang.NullPointerException
