The put(E ele) method of DelayQueue class in Java is used to inserts a given element into the delay queue container. Hetre, E is the type of element maintained by this DelayQueue container.
 

Syntax:  

public void put(E ele)

Parameters: This method accepts only one parameter ele. It is the element which will be inserted into the delay queue.
Return Value: The return type of the method is void and it does not return any value.
Exception: 
 

  • NullPointerException: It is thrown if the given value is null.

Below programs illustrate the put() method of DelayQueue in Java:
Program 1
 

Java




// Java program to illustrate the put()
// method in Java
 
import java.util.concurrent.DelayQueue;
import java.util.concurrent.Delayed;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Create DelayQueue instance
        DelayQueue<Delayed> queue = new DelayQueue<Delayed>();
 
        // Initially Delay Queue is empty
        System.out.println("Before calling put() : "
                           + queue.isEmpty());
 
        // Create an object of type Delayed
        Delayed ele = new Delayed() {
            public long getDelay(TimeUnit unit)
            {
                return 24; // some value is returned
            }
 
            public int compareTo(Delayed o)
            {
                if (o.getDelay(TimeUnit.DAYS) >
                              this.getDelay(TimeUnit.DAYS))
                    return 1;
                else if (o.getDelay(TimeUnit.DAYS) == 
                                this.getDelay(TimeUnit.DAYS))
                    return 0;
                return -1;
            }
        };
 
        // Insert the created object to DelayQueue
        // using the put() method
        queue.put(ele);
 
        // Check if DelayQueue is empty.
        System.out.println("After calling put() : "
                           + queue.isEmpty());
    }
}
Output: 
Before calling put() : true
After calling put() : false

 

Program 2 : Demonstration of NullPointerException. 
 

Java




// Java program to illustrate the Exception thrown
// by put() method of DelayQueue
 
import java.util.concurrent.DelayQueue;
import java.util.concurrent.Delayed;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        DelayQueue<Delayed> queue = new DelayQueue<Delayed>();
 
        try {
            queue.put(null);
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output: 
java.lang.NullPointerException
