Java has a Queue interface. You can take a look for yourself which classes in the standard API implement it that fit your needs. For a simple Queue, I can recommend ArrayDeque. However, you may also want to take a look at classes that implement BlockingQueue or PriorityQueue, if you need their specific semantics.
