LinkedBlockingDeque getFirst() method in Java
  • Last Updated : 14 Sep, 2018

The getFirst() method of LinkedBlockingDeque returns the front most element in the Deque container. If the LinkedBlockingDeque is empty, then on function call it returns a NoSuchElementException.

Syntax:

public E getLast()

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameters.

Returns: This method returns the first element or the head of this Deque container.

Exception: The function throws only one exception i.e., NoSuchElementException when the deque is empty



Below programs illustrate getFirst() method of LinkedBlockingDeque:

Program 1:




// Java Program Demonstrate getFirst()
// method of LinkedBlockingDeque
  
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingDeque;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws IllegalStateException
    {
  
        // create object of LinkedBlockingDeque
        LinkedBlockingDeque<Integer> LBD
            = new LinkedBlockingDeque<Integer>();
  
        // Add numbers to front of LinkedBlockingDeque
        LBD.addFirst(7855642);
        LBD.addFirst(35658786);
        LBD.addFirst(5278367);
        LBD.addFirst(74381793);
  
        // before removing print queue
        System.out.println("Linked Blocking Deque: " + LBD);
  
        // prints the first element
        System.out.println("Linked Blocking Deque first element: "
                                                    LBD.getFirst());
    }
}
Output:
Linked Blocking Deque: [74381793, 5278367, 35658786, 7855642]
Linked Blocking Deque first element: 74381793

Program 2:




// Java Program Demonstrate getFirst()
// method of LinkedBlockingDeque
  
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingDeque;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws IllegalStateException
    {
  
        // create object of LinkedBlockingDeque
        LinkedBlockingDeque<Integer> LBD
            = new LinkedBlockingDeque<Integer>();
  
        // Add numbers to front of LinkedBlockingDeque
        LBD.addFirst(7855642);
        LBD.addFirst(35658786);
        LBD.addFirst(5278367);
        LBD.addFirst(74381793)
  
            LBD.clear();
  
        // Since the container is empty it will throw exception
        System.out.println("Linked Blocking Deque first element: "
                                                    LBD.getFirst());
    }
}

Output:

Exception in thread "main" java.util.NoSuchElementException
    at java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingDeque.getFirst(LinkedBlockingDeque.java:553)
    at GFG.main(GFG.java:28)
