import java.util.*;

public class PriorityQueueDemo {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
   // create priority queue
   PriorityQueue < Integer >  prq = new PriorityQueue < Integer > (); 
       
   // insert values in the queue
   prq.add(6);  
   prq.add(9);
   prq.add(5);
   prq.add(64);
   prq.add(6);
      
   System.out.println ( "Priority queue values are: "+ prq);
      
   // create arr1
   Integer[] arr1 = new Integer[5];
      
   // use toArrsy() method
   Integer[] arr2 = prq.toArray(arr1); 
  
   System.out.println ( "Value in arr1: ");
      
   for ( int i = 0; i<arr1.length; i++ ){  
   System.out.println ( "Value: " + arr1[i]) ; 
   }
      
   System.out.println ( "Value in arr2: ");
      
   for ( int i = 0; i<arr2.length; i++ ){  
   System.out.println ( "Value: " + arr2[i]) ; 
   }
   }
}

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

Priority queue values are: [5, 6, 6, 64, 9]
Value in arr1: 
Value: 5
Value: 6
Value: 6
Value: 64
Value: 9
Value in arr2: 
Value: 5
Value: 6
Value: 6
Value: 64
Value: 9
