Below program illustrate the Java.util.method.clear() method:

// Java code to illustrate clear()
import java.util.*;
public class NavigableSetDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
        // Creating an empty NavigableSet
        NavigableSet<String> st = new TreeSet<String>();
        // Use add() method to add elements into the NavigableSet
        // Displaying the NavigableSet
        System.out.println("Initial NavigableSet: " + st);
        // Clearing the NavigableSet using clear() method
        // Displaying the final NavigableSet after clearing;
        System.out.println("The final NavigableSet: " + st);
