Java Guava | Chars.toArray() method with Examples

The toArray() method of Chars Class in the Guava library is used to convert the char values, passed as the parameter to this method, into a Char Array. These char values are passed as a Collection to this method. This method returns a Char array.

Syntax:

public static char[] toArray(Collection<Character> collection)



Parameters: This method accepts a mandatory parameter collection which is the collection of char values to be converted in to a Char array.

Return Value: This method returns a char array containing the same values as a collection, in the same order.

Exceptions: This method throws NullPointerException if the passed collection or any of its elements is null.

Below programs illustrate the use of toArray() method:

        List<Character> myList
            = Arrays.asList('G', 'E', 'E', 'K', 'S');
  
        // Using Chars.toArray() method to convert
        // a List or Set of Char to an array of Char
        char[] arr = Chars.toArray(myList);
  
        // Displaying an array containing each
        // value of collection,
        // converted to a char value
        System.out.println(Arrays.toString(arr));
    }
