// Java code to illustrate iterator()
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class SetDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Creating an empty Set
        Set<String> set = new HashSet<String>();
  
        // Use add() method to add elements into the Set
        set.add("Welcome");
        set.add("To");
        set.add("Geeks");
        set.add("4");
        set.add("Geeks");
  
        // Displaying the Set
        System.out.println("Set: " + set);
  
        // Creating an iterator
        Iterator value = set.iterator();
  
        // Displaying the values after iterating through the iterator
        System.out.println("The iterator values are: ");
        while (value.hasNext()) {
            System.out.println(value.next());
        }
    }
}
