Interface ListIterator

All Superinterfaces:
Iterator

public interface ListIterator
extends Iterator

An iterator for lists that allows the programmer to traverse the list in either direction and modify the list during iteration.

Since:
1.2
See Also:
Collection, List, Iterator, Enumeration

Method Summary
 void add(Object o)
          Inserts the specified element into the list (optional operation).
 boolean hasNext()
          Returns true if this list iterator has more elements when traversing the list in the forward direction.
 boolean hasPrevious()
          Returns true if this list iterator has more elements when traversing the list in the reverse direction.
 Object next()
          Returns the next element in the list.
 int nextIndex()
          Returns the index of the element that would be returned by a subsequent call to next.
 Object previous()
          Returns the previous element in the list.
 int previousIndex()
          Returns the index of the element that would be returned by a subsequent call to previous.
 void remove()
          Removes from the list the last element that was returned by next or previous (optional operation).
 void set(Object o)
          Replaces the last element returned by next or previous with the specified element (optional operation).
 

Method Detail

hasNext

public boolean hasNext()
Returns true if this list iterator has more elements when traversing the list in the forward direction. (In other words, returns true if next would return an element rather than throwing an exception.)
Specified by:
hasNext in interface Iterator
Returns:
true if the list iterator has more elements when traversing the list in the forward direction.

next

public Object next()
Returns the next element in the list. This method may be called repeatedly to iterate through the list, or intermixed with calls to previous to go back and forth. (Note that alternating calls to next and previous will return the same element repeatedly.)
Specified by:
next in interface Iterator
Returns:
the next element in the list.
Throws:
NoSuchElementException - if the iteration has no next element.

hasPrevious

public boolean hasPrevious()
Returns true if this list iterator has more elements when traversing the list in the reverse direction. (In other words, returns true if previous would return an element rather than throwing an exception.)
Returns:
true if the list iterator has more elements when traversing the list in the reverse direction.

previous

public Object previous()
Returns the previous element in the list. This method may be called repeatedly to iterate through the list backwards, or intermixed with calls to next to go back and forth. (Note that alternating calls to next and previous will return the same element repeatedly.)
Returns:
the previous element in the list.
Throws:
NoSuchElementException - if the iteration has no previous element.

nextIndex

public int nextIndex()
Returns the index of the element that would be returned by a subsequent call to next. (Returns list size if the list iterator is at the end of the list.)
Returns:
the index of the element that would be returned by a subsequent call to next, or list size if list iterator is at end of list.

previousIndex

public int previousIndex()
Returns the index of the element that would be returned by a subsequent call to previous. (Returns -1 if the list iterator is at the beginning of the list.)
Returns:
the index of the element that would be returned by a subsequent call to previous, or -1 if list iterator is at beginning of list.

remove

public void remove()
Removes from the list the last element that was returned by next or previous (optional operation). This call can only be made once per call to next or previous. It can be made only if ListIterator.add has not been called after the last call to next or previous.
Specified by:
remove in interface Iterator
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the remove operation is not supported by this list iterator.
IllegalStateException - neither next nor previous have been called, or remove or add have been called after the last call to * next or previous.

set

public void set(Object o)
Replaces the last element returned by next or previous with the specified element (optional operation). This call can be made only if neither ListIterator.remove nor ListIterator.add have been called after the last call to next or previous.
Parameters:
o - the element with which to replace the last element returned by next or previous.
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the set operation is not supported by this list iterator.
ClassCastException - if the class of the specified element prevents it from being added to this list.
IllegalArgumentException - if some aspect of the specified element prevents it from being added to this list.
IllegalStateException - if neither next nor previous have been called, or remove or add have been called after the last call to next or previous.

add

public void add(Object o)
Inserts the specified element into the list (optional operation). The element is inserted immediately before the next element that would be returned by next, if any, and after the next element that would be returned by previous, if any. (If the list contains no elements, the new element becomes the sole element on the list.) The new element is inserted before the implicit cursor: a subsequent call to next would be unaffected, and a subsequent call to previous would return the new element. (This call increases by one the value that would be returned by a call to nextIndex or previousIndex.)
Parameters:
o - the element to insert.
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the add method is not supported by this list iterator.
ClassCastException - if the class of the specified element prevents it from being added to this Set.
IllegalArgumentException - if some aspect of this element prevents it from being added to this Collection.
