Program: How to delete all elements from HashSet?


Description:

Below example shows how to delete all entries at one call from HashSet. By calling clear() method, we can remove all elements from HashSet at once.


Code:
package com.java2novice.hashset;

import java.util.HashSet;

public class MyHashSetClear {

	public static void main(String a[]){
		HashSet<String> hs = new HashSet<String>();
		//add elements to HashSet
		hs.add("first");
		hs.add("second");
		hs.add("third");
		System.out.println("My HashSet content:");
		System.out.println(hs);
		System.out.println("Clearing HashSet:");
		hs.clear();
		System.out.println("Content After clear:");
		System.out.println(hs);
	}
}

Output:
My HashSet content:
[second, third, first]
Clearing HashSet:
Content After clear:
[]

What is race condition?
A race condition is a situation in which two or more threads or processes are reading or writing some shared data, and the final result depends on the timing of how the threads are scheduled. Race conditions can lead to unpredictable results and subtle program bugs. A thread can prevent this from happening by locking an object. When an object is locked by one thread and another thread tries to call a synchronized method on the same object, the second thread will block until the object is unlocked.
