LinkedBlockingQueue clear() method in Java

The clear() method of LinkedBlockingQueue removes all of the elements from this queue. After applying this method the queue will become empty.

Syntax:

public void clear()

Below programs illustrates clear() method of LinkedBlockingQueue class:

        int capacityOfQueue = 50;
  
        // create object of LinkedBlockingQueue
        LinkedBlockingQueue<Integer> linkedQueue
            = new LinkedBlockingQueue<Integer>(capacityOfQueue);
  
        // Add element to LinkedBlockingQueue
        linkedQueue.add(2300);
        linkedQueue.add(1322);
        linkedQueue.add(8945);
        linkedQueue.add(6512);
  
        // print queue
        System.out.println("LinkedBlockingQueue before using"
                           + " clear() : " + linkedQueue);
  
        // Apply clear() method
        linkedQueue.clear();
  
        // print queue
        System.out.println();
        System.out.println("LinkedBlockingQueue after using"
                           + " clear() method : " + linkedQueue);
    }
}

Output:

LinkedBlockingQueue before using clear() : [2300, 1322, 8945, 6512]
