LinkedBlockingDeque takeFirst() method in Java

The takeFirst() method of LinkedBlockingDeque returns and removes the first element of the Deque container from it, waiting if necessary until an element becomes available.. The method throws an InterruptedException if it is interrupted while waiting.

Syntax:

public E takeFirst()

Returns: This method returns the first element of the Deque container, waiting if necessary until an element becomes available.



Exception: The function throws an InterruptedException if it is interrupted while waiting.

Output:

Linked Blocking Deque: [7855642, 35658786, 5278367, 74381793]
Head of Linked Blocking Deque: 7855642
Linked Blocking Deque: [35658786, 5278367, 74381793]
