LinkedList removeLastOccurrence() method in Java with Example

  • Last Updated : 19 Nov, 2019

The java.util.concurrent.LinkedList.removeLastOccurrence() method is an inbuilt method in Java which accepts a parameter and removes the last appearance of that element in the list. Thus, in case the element is not present in the list, it remains unchanged.

Syntax:

public boolean removeLastOccurrence(Object o)

Parameters: The function accepts an object elem as parameter which denotes the object whose last appearance from the list is to be removed.

Return Value: The function returns true if elem is present in th list and returns false otherwise.

Below programs illustrate the use of removeLastOccurrence() method :






// Java program to demonstrate removeLastOccurrence()
// method of LinkedList
  
import java.util.*;
  
class LinkedListDemo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        LinkedList<String> list
            = new LinkedList<String>();
  
        list.add("GFG");
        list.add("Geeks");
        list.add("Gfg");
        list.add("gfg");
        list.add("Geeks");
  
        // Displaying the existing LinkedList
        System.out.println("LinkedList: "
                           + list);
  
        // Remove last occurrence of  element
        list.removeLastOccurrence("Geeks");
  
        System.out.println("Removed last occurrence"
                           + " of 'Geeks' from the list");
  
        // Displaying the modified LinkedList
        System.out.println("LinkedList: "
                           + list);
    }
}
Output:
LinkedList: [GFG, Geeks, Gfg, gfg, Geeks]
Removed last occurrence of 'Geeks' from the list
LinkedList: [GFG, Geeks, Gfg, gfg]

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate removeLastOccurrence()
// method of LinkedList
  
import java.util.*;
  
class LinkedListDemo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        LinkedList<Integer>
            list = new LinkedList<Integer>();
  
        list.add(12);
        list.add(280);
        list.add(12);
        list.add(1050);
        list.add(12);
  
        // Displaying the existing LinkedList
        System.out.println("LinkedList: "
                           + list);
  
        // Remove last occurrence of  element
        list.removeLastOccurrence(12);
  
        System.out.println("Removed last occurrence"
                           + " of '12' from the list");
  
        // Displaying the modified LinkedList
        System.out.println("LinkedList: "
                           + list);
    }
}
Output:
LinkedList: [12, 280, 12, 1050, 12]
Removed last occurrence of '12' from the list
LinkedList: [12, 280, 12, 1050]
