HashSet spliterator() method in Java
The spliterator() method of HashSet returns a Spliterator with the same elements as HashSet. The returned Spliterator is late-binding and fail-fast Spliterator. A late-binding Spliterator binds to the source of elements means HashSet at the point of first traversal, first split, or first query for estimated size, rather than at the time the Spliterator is created. It can be used with Streams in Java 8. Also it can traverse elements individually and in bulk too. Spliterator is better way to traverse over element because it provides more control on elements.
public Spliterator<E> spliterator()
Returns: This method returns a Spliterator over the elements in HashSet.
