LinkedBlockingDeque takeFirst() method in Java
  • Last Updated : 26 Nov, 2018

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.

Below programs illustrate takeFirst() method of LinkedBlockingDeque:



Program 1:




// Java Program to demonstrate takeFirst()
// method of LinkedBlockingDeque
  
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingDeque;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws InterruptedException
    {
  
        // 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 Dequeue
        System.out.println("Linked Blocking Deque: " + LBD);
  
        // removes the front element and prints it
        System.out.println("Head of Linked Blocking Deque: "
                           + LBD.takeFirst());
  
        // prints the Deque
        System.out.println("Linked Blocking Deque: " + LBD);
    }
}
Output:
Linked Blocking Deque: [7855642, 35658786, 5278367, 74381793]
Head of Linked Blocking Deque: 7855642
Linked Blocking Deque: [35658786, 5278367, 74381793]

Program 2: To demonstrate InterruptedException




// Java Program to demonstrate takeFirst()
// method of LinkedBlockingDeque
  
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedBlockingDeque;
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws InterruptedException
    {
  
        // 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 Dequeue
        System.out.println("Linked Blocking Deque: " + LBD);
  
        LBD.clear();
  
        // throws error as the list is empty and it
        // is interrupted while waiting
        System.out.println("Head of Linked Blocking Deque: "
                           + LBD.takeFirst());
    }
}

Runtime Errors:

Max real time limit exceeded due to either by heavy load on server or by using sleep function
