Remove an element from a Queue in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

To remove an element from a Queue, use the remove() method.

First, set a Queue and insert some elements −

Queue<String> q = new LinkedList<String>();
q.offer("abc");
q.offer("def");
q.offer("ghi");
q.offer("jkl");
q.offer("mno");
q.offer("pqr");
q.offer("stu");
q.offer("vwx");

Remove the first element −

System.out.println("Queue head = " + q.element());
System.out.println("Removing element from queue = " + q.remove());

The following is an example −

Example

 Live Demo

import java.util.LinkedList;
import java.util.Queue;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      Queue<String> q = new LinkedList<String>();
      q.offer("abc");
      q.offer("def");
      q.offer("ghi");
      q.offer("jkl");
      q.offer("mno");
      q.offer("pqr");
      q.offer("stu");
      q.offer("vwx");
      System.out.println("Queue head = " + q.element());
      System.out.println("Removing element from queue = " + q.remove());
      System.out.println("\nRemaining Queue elements...");
      Object ob;
      while ((ob = q.poll()) != null) {
         System.out.println(ob);
      }
   }
}

Output

Queue head = abc
Removing element from queue = abc
Queue head now = abc
Remaining Queue elements...
