Example

The following example shows the usage of java.util.ArrayDeque.pollFirst() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.util.ArrayDeque;
import java.util.Deque;

public class ArrayDequeDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      
      // create an empty array deque with an initial capacity
      Deque<Integer> deque = new ArrayDeque<Integer>(8);

      // use add() method to add elements in the deque
      deque.add(25);
      deque.add(30);
      deque.add(20);
      deque.add(18);        
           
      // printing all the elements available in deque
      for (Integer number : deque) {
         System.out.println("Number = " + number);
      }
      int retval = deque.pollFirst();
      System.out.println("Element removed is " + retval);
	  
      // printing all the elements available in deque after using pollFirst()
      for (Integer number : deque) {
         System.out.println("Number = " + number);
      }
   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Number = 25
Number = 30
Number = 20
Number = 18
Element removed is 25
Number = 30
Number = 20
Number = 18
