"Inserts the specified element at the front of this deque if it is possible to do so immediately without violating capacity restrictions".

How does JDK handle capacity within a Deque?

The API documentation answers that question at the top of the description of interface Deque and in the descriptions of the implementations of the interface. For example for ArrayDeque it says:
Resizable-array implementation of the Deque interface. Array deques have no capacity restrictions; they grow as necessary to support usage.

And you can give a LinkedBlockingDeque a fixed capacity (see the documentation).
