ArrayDeque Class pollLast() method

  • pollLast() Method is available in java.lang package.
  • pollLast() Method is used to return the last element of the queue denoted by this deque but with removing the last element from this deque.
  • pollLast() Method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • pollLast() Method does not throw an exception at the time of retrieving the element of this deque.


    public T pollLast();


  • It does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

The return type of the method is T, it returns the last element denoted by this deque otherwise it returns null, when this deque is "blank".


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of T pollLast() method of ArrayDeque 

import java.util.*;

public class PollLastOfArrayDeque {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Creating an ArrayDeque with initial capacity of
        //storing elements
        Deque < String > d_queue = new ArrayDeque < String > (10);

        // By using add() method to add elements
        // in ArrayDeque

        // Display Deque Elements
        System.out.println("d_queue before pollLast(): ");
        System.out.println("ArrayDeque Elements = " + d_queue);


        // By using pollLast() method to remove and return the
        // element at the last position in ArrayDeque
        String ele = d_queue.pollLast();

        // Display Returned Elements
        System.out.println("d_queue.pollLast() : " + ele);


        // Display Deque Elements
        System.out.println("d_queue after pollLast(): ");
        System.out.println("ArrayDeque Elements = " + d_queue);


d_queue before pollLast(): 
ArrayDeque Elements = [C, C++, Java, Php, DotNet]

d_queue.pollLast() : DotNet

d_queue after pollLast(): 
ArrayDeque Elements = [C, C++, Java, Php]
