Live Demo
package com.tutorialspoint;

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
