I executed the following code.
import java.util.*;

class DemoPQ {
public static void main(String[] args) {
PriorityQueue<String> pq = new PriorityQueue<String>();
pq.add("Ravi");
pq.add("Kumar");
pq.add("Sumit");
pq.add("Vineet");
pq.add("Amit");

for(String s q) {
System.out.print(pq.peek() + ", " + pq.poll());

}
}

}

Got the output as Amit followed by ConcurrentModificationException.
May I know why does this exception come?

Thanks,
Sumi

I think polling(removing element) causing the Iteration get effected. try to poll outside the loop.

Hi,
For each iteration the current thread (main) read an element from the Queue and then alter it with the poll method.
So at the second iteration, the content of collection (pq) has changed and it's the cause of the throw of ConcurrentModificationException. Read the Javadoc of it.

If you write something like :

it works fine.
