  • Last Updated : 14 Sep, 2018

The poll() method of LinkedBlockingDeque returns the front element in the Deque container and deletes it. It returns null if the container is empty.

Syntax:

public E poll()

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameters.

Returns: This method returns front element of the Deque container if the container is not empty and deletes it. It returns null if the container is empty.

Below programs illustrate poll() method of LinkedBlockingDeque:

        // create object of LinkedBlockingDeque
        LinkedBlockingDeque<Integer> LBD
            = new LinkedBlockingDeque<Integer>();
  
        // Add numbers to end of LinkedBlockingDeque
        LBD.add(7855642);
        LBD.add(35658786);
        LBD.add(5278367);
        LBD.add(74381793);
  
        // Print the queue
        System.out.println("Linked Blocking Deque: " + LBD);
  
        System.out.println("Front element in Deque: " + LBD.poll());
  
        // One element is deleted as poll was called
        System.out.println("Linked Blocking Deque: " + LBD);
    }
}

Output:

Linked Blocking Deque: [7855642, 35658786, 5278367, 74381793]
Front element in Deque: 7855642
Linked Blocking Deque: [35658786, 5278367, 74381793]
