  • Last Updated : 14 Sep, 2018

The java.util.concurrent.LinkedTransferQueue.poll() method is an in-built function in Java which retrieves and remove the head of the queue if the queue is non-empty.

Syntax:

LinkedTransferQueue.poll()  

Parameters: The function does not accept any parameter.

Return Value: The function returns the head of the queue if the queue is non-empty, otherwise it returns null.

Below programs illustrate the LinkedTransferQueue.poll() method:



Program 1:




/* Java Program Demonstrate poll()
   method of LinkedTransferQueue */
  
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedTransferQueue;
  
class LinkedTransferQueuePollExample1 {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Initializing the queue
        LinkedTransferQueue<Character> queue = 
                       new LinkedTransferQueue<Character>();
  
        // Adding elements to this queue
        for (char ch = 'A'; ch <= 'Z'; ch++) {
            queue.add(ch);
        }
  
        // Printing the head of the queue
        System.out.println("The head of the queue is " 
                                           + queue.poll());
  
        // Printing remaining elements of the queue
        System.out.println("The elements in the queue :");
        for (Character i : queue)
            System.out.print(i + " ");
    }
}
Output:
The head of the queue is A
The elements in the queue :
B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Program 2:




/* Java Program Demonstrate poll()
   method of LinkedTransferQueue */
  
import java.util.concurrent.LinkedTransferQueue;
  
class LinkedTransferQueuePollExample2 {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Initializing the queue
        LinkedTransferQueue<Integer> queue = 
                     new LinkedTransferQueue<Integer>();
  
        // Adding elements to this queue
        for (int i = 10; i <= 50; i += 10)
            queue.add(i);
  
        // Printing the head of the queue
        System.out.println("The head of the queue is " 
                                           + queue.poll());
  
        // Printing remaining elements of the queue
        System.out.println("The elements in the queue :");
        for (Integer i : queue)
            System.out.print(i + " ");
    }
}
Output:
The head of the queue is 10
The elements in the queue :
20 30 40 50
