public class LinkedTransferQueue extends AbstractQueue<E>
implements TransferQueue<E> Serializable

An unbounded TransferQueue based on linked nodes. This queue orders elements FIFO (first-in-first-out) with respect to any given producer. The head of the queue is that element that has been on the queue the longest time for some producer. The tail of the queue is that element that has been on the queue the shortest time for some producer.

Beware that, unlike in most collections, the size method is NOT a constant-time operation. Because of the asynchronous nature of these queues, determining the current number of elements requires a traversal of the elements, and so may report inaccurate results if this collection is modified during traversal. Additionally, the bulk operations addAll, removeAll, retainAll, containsAll, equals, and toArray are not guaranteed to be performed atomically. For example, an iterator operating concurrently with an addAll operation might view only some of the added elements.

This class and its iterator implement all of the optional methods of the Collection and Iterator interfaces.

Memory consistency effects: As with other concurrent collections, actions in a thread prior to placing an object into a LinkedTransferQueue happen-before actions subsequent to the access or removal of that element from the LinkedTransferQueue in another thread.

Public Constructor Summary

Creates an initially empty LinkedTransferQueue.
LinkedTransferQueue(Collection<? extends E> c)
Creates a LinkedTransferQueue initially containing the elements of the given collection, added in traversal order of the collection's iterator.

Public Method Summary

add(E e)
Inserts the specified element at the tail of this queue.
contains(Object o)
Returns true if this queue contains the specified element.
drainTo(Collection<? super E> c, int maxElements)
Removes at most the given number of available elements from this queue and adds them to the given collection.
