Java 8 | LinkedBlockingQueue spliterator() method with Examples
  • Last Updated : 26 Nov, 2018

The spliterator() method of LinkedBlockingQueue returns a Spliterator of the same elements as LinkedBlockingQueue. The returned iterator is weakly consistent. It can be used with Streams in Java 8. Also it can traverse elements individually and in bulk too.

Syntax:

public Spliterator spliterator()

Return Value: This method returns a Spliterator over the elements in LinkedBlockingQueue.

Below programs illustrates spliterator() method of LinkedBlockingQueue class:

Program 1: Creating a Spliterator from LinkedBlockingQueue which contains names of different student of a class






// Java Program Demonstrate spliterator()
// method of LinkedBlockingQueue
  
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingQueue;
import java.util.*;
public class GFG {
  
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // define capacity of LinkedBlockingQueue
        int capacityOfQueue = 7;
  
        // create object of LinkedBlockingQueue
        LinkedBlockingQueue<String> linkedQueue
            = new LinkedBlockingQueue<String>(capacityOfQueue);
  
        // Add element to LinkedBlockingQueue
        linkedQueue.add("Aman");
        linkedQueue.add("Amar");
        linkedQueue.add("Sanjeet");
        linkedQueue.add("Rabi");
  
        // create Spliterator of linkedQueue
        // using spliterator() method
        Spliterator<String> listOfNames = linkedQueue.spliterator();
  
        // print result from Spliterator
        System.out.println("list of names:");
  
        // forEachRemaining method  of Spliterator
        listOfNames.forEachRemaining((n) -> System.out.println(n));
    }
}
Output:
list of names:
Aman
Amar
Sanjeet
Rabi

Program 2: Creating a Spliterator from LinkedBlockingQueue which contains list of Employees objects.




// Java Program Demonstrate spliterator()
// method of LinkedBlockingQueue
  
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingQueue;
import java.util.*;
public class GFG {
  
    public void collectSplitator()
    {
        // define capacity of LinkedBlockingQueue
        int capacityOfQueue = 7;
  
        // create object of LinkedBlockingQueue
        LinkedBlockingQueue<Employee> linkedQueue
            = new LinkedBlockingQueue<Employee>(capacityOfQueue);
  
        // Add element to LinkedBlockingQueue
        Employee emp1 = new Employee("Aman", "Blogger", "100000");
        Employee emp2 = new Employee("Amar", "Manager", "99000");
  
        // Add Employee Objects to linkedQueue
        linkedQueue.add(emp1);
        linkedQueue.add(emp2);
  
        // create Spliterator of linkedQueue
        // using spliterator() method
        Spliterator<Employee> listOfEmp = linkedQueue.spliterator();
  
        // print result from Spliterator
        System.out.println("No of Employees = "
                           + linkedQueue.size());
  
        // forEachRemaining method  of Spliterator
        listOfEmp.forEachRemaining((n) -> print(n));
    }
  
    // print emplyee details
    public void print(Employee e)
    {
        System.out.println("-----------------------------");
        System.out.println("Employee Name : " + e.name);
        System.out.println("Employee Position : " + e.position);
        System.out.println("Employee Salary : " + e.salary);
    }
  
    // create an Employee Object with name,
    // position and salary as attributes
    public class Employee {
  
        public String name;
        public String position;
        public String salary;
  
        Employee(String name, String position, String salary)
        {
            this.name = name;
            this.position = position;
            this.salary = salary;
        }
  
        @Override
        public String toString()
        {
            return "Employee [name=" + name + ", position="
                + position + ", salary=" + salary + "]";
        }
    }
  
    // Main Method
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        GFG gfg = new GFG();
        gfg.collectSplitator();
    }
}
Output:
No of Employees = 2
-----------------------------
Employee Name : Aman
Employee Position : Blogger
Employee Salary : 100000
-----------------------------
Employee Name : Amar
Employee Position : Manager
Employee Salary : 99000
