public class LoopingIterator<E> extends Object implements ResettableIterator<E>
The iterator will loop continuously around the provided elements, unless
there are no elements in the collection to begin with, or all the elements
Concurrent modifications are not directly supported, and for most collection implementations will throw a ConcurrentModificationException.
|Constructor and Description|
Constructor that wraps a collection.
|Modifier and Type||Method and Description|
Has the iterator any more elements.
Returns the next object in the collection.
Removes the previously retrieved item from the underlying collection.
Resets the iterator back to the start of the collection.
Gets the size of the collection underlying the iterator.
public LoopingIterator(Collection<? extends E> coll)
There is no way to reset an Iterator instance without recreating it from the original source, so the Collection must be passed in.
coll- the collection to wrap
NullPointerException- if the collection is null
public boolean hasNext()
Returns false only if the collection originally had zero elements, or
all the elements have been
If at the end of the collection, return the first element.
public void remove()
This feature is only supported if the underlying collection's
iterator method returns an implementation
that supports it.
This method can only be called after at least one
next() method call.
After a removal, the remove method may not be called again until another
next has been performed. If the
reset() is called, then remove may
not be called until
next() is called again.
