Program: How to remove elements from LinkedList?


Below example shows how to remove or delete an element from LinkedList. LinkedList provides few methods to remove elements, those methods are:

remove(): Retrieves and removes the head (first element) of this list.
remove(index): Removes the element at the specified position in this list.
remove(object): Removes the first occurrence of the specified element from this list, if it is present.
removeFirst(): Removes and returns the first element from this list.
removeFirstOccurrence(object): Removes the first occurrence of the specified element in this list (when traversing the list from head to tail).
removeLast(): Removes and returns the last element from this list.
removeLastOccurrence(object): Removes the last occurrence of the specified element in this list (when traversing the list from head to tail).

package com.java2novice.linkedlist;

import java.util.LinkedList;

public class MyAllRemoveOprs {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		LinkedList<String> arrl = new LinkedList<String>();
		System.out.println("Remov() method:"+arrl.remove());
		System.out.println("After remove() method call:");
		System.out.println("remove(index) method:"+arrl.remove(2));
		System.out.println("After remove(index) method call:");
		System.out.println("Remov(object) method:"+arrl.remove("six"));
		System.out.println("After remove(object) method call:");
		System.out.println("removeFirst() method:"+arrl.removeFirst());
		System.out.println("After removeFirst() method call:");
		System.out.println("removeFirstOccurrence() method:"
		System.out.println("After removeFirstOccurrence() method call:");
		System.out.println("removeLast() method:"+arrl.removeLast());
		System.out.println("After removeLast() method call:");
		System.out.println("removeLastOccurrence() method:"
		System.out.println("After removeLastOccurrence() method call:");

Class, Constructor and Primitive data types
Class is a template for multiple objects with similar features and it is a blue print for objects. It defines a type of object according to the data the object can hold and the operations the object can perform. Constructor is a special kind of method that determines how an object is initialized when created. Primitive data types are 8 types and they are: byte, short, int, long, float, double, boolean, char.
