Introduction

The java.util.LinkedHashSet class is a Hash table and Linked list implementation of the Set interface, with predictable iteration order.Following are the important points about LinkedHashSet:

  • This class provides all of the optional Set operations, and permits null elements.

Class declaration

Following is the declaration for java.util.LinkedHashSet class:

public class LinkedHashSet<E>
   extends HashSet<E>
   implements Set<E>, Cloneable, Serializable

Parameters

Following is the parameter for java.util.LinkedHashSet class:

  • E -- This is the type of elements maintained by this set.

Class constructors

S.N. Constructor & Description
1

LinkedHashSet()

This constructs a new, empty linked hash set with the default initial capacity (16) and load factor (0.75).

2

LinkedHashSet(Collection<? extends E> c)

This constructs a new linked hash set with the same elements as the specified collection.

3

LinkedHashSet(int initialCapacity)

This constructs a new, empty linked hash set with the specified initial capacity and the default load factor (0.75).

4

LinkedHashSet(int initialCapacity, float loadFactor)

This constructs a new, empty linked hash set with the specified initial capacity and load factor.
