Java ArrayList isEmpty() Method Example

The following example shows the usage of java.util.ArrayList.isEmpty()

import java.util.ArrayList;

public class ArrayListDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      // create an empty array deque with an initial capacity
      ArrayList<Integer> arrlist = new ArrayList<>(5);

      // use add() method to add elements in the deque
      boolean retval = arrlist.isEmpty();
      if (retval == true) {
         System.out.println("list is empty");
      } else {
         System.out.println("list is not empty");
      // printing all the elements available in list
      for (Integer number : arrlist) {
         System.out.println("Number = " + number);
Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −
list is not empty
Number = 25
Number = 10
Number = 20
Number = 35
