java.util.Collections.disjoint() method is present in java.util.Collections class. It is used to check whether two specified collections are disjoint or not. More formally, two collections are disjoint if they have no elements in common.
Syntax: public static boolean disjoint(Collection<?> c1, Collection<?> c2) Parameters : c1 - a collection c2 - a collection Returns : true if the two specified collections have no elements in common. Throws: NullPointerException - if either collection is null. NullPointerException - if one collection contains a null element and null is not an eligible element for the other collection. ClassCastException - if one collection contains an element that is of a type which is ineligible for the other collection.
Note that it is permissible to pass the same collection in both parameters, in which case the method will return true if and only if the collection is empty.

How to quickly check whether two arrays in Java are disjoint or not?
Arrays class in Java doesn’t have disjoint method. We can use Collections.disjoint() to check quickly disjoincy of two arrays.
is arr1 disjoint to arr2 : true is arr1 disjoint to arr3 : false is arr1 disjoint to arr4 : true
