LinkedList源码解读



List和Deque接口的双向链表实现。实现了所有列表操作,并且允许所有元素(包括 null)。

所有操作都是按照双向链表的需要执行的。在列表中编索引的操作将从开头或结尾遍历列表(从靠近指定索引的一端)。

注意,此实现不是同步的。如果多个线程同时访问一个LinkedList,而其中至少一个线程从结构上修改了该列表,则它必须保持外部同步。(结构上的修改是指任何添加或删除一个或多个元素的操作;仅仅设置元素的值不是结构上的修改。)这一般通过对自然封装该list的对象进行同步操作来完成。

如果不存在这样的对象,则应该使用
Collections.synchronizedList()方法将该list“包装”起来。这最好在创建时完成,以防止意外对list进行不同步的访问:

List list = Collections.synchronizedList(new LinkedList(...));
                

此类的iterator()listIterator()方法返回的迭代器是快速失败(fail-fast)的:在创建迭代器之后,除非通过迭代器自身的remove()add()方法从结构上对list进行修改,否则在任何时间以任何方式对list进行修改(即modCount值发生变化),迭代器都会抛出ConcurrentModificationException异常。因此,面对并发的修改,迭代器很快就会完全失败(fail),而不是冒着在将来某个不确定时间发生任意不确定行为的风险。

注意,迭代器的快速失败行为无法得到保证,因为一般来说,不可能对是否出现不同步并发修改做出任何硬性保证。快速失败迭代器会尽最大努力抛出ConcurrentModificationException异常。因此,为提高这类迭代器的正确性而编写一个依赖于此异常的程序是错误的做法:迭代器的快速失败行为应该仅用于检测 bug。









LinkedList继承于AbstractList,实现了List, Deque, Cloneable(可克隆), java.io.Serializable(可序列化)接口


size:ArrayList的大小(即包含元素的个数)
被关键字transient修饰表示不参与序列化过程



first:指向第一个结点(Node)的引用




last:指向最后一个结点的引用


LinkedList():构造一个空list



LinkedList(Collection<? extends E> c):构造一个包含指定collectionc的元素的list,这些元素是按照c的迭代器返回它们的顺序排列的。
如果cnull则抛出NullPointerException异常

先调用无参构造器构造一个空list
然后调用addAll方法将c中的所有元素加入list



linkFirst(E e):将指定的元素e插入list头部,作为头结点

创建头结点的引用f,并构造一个新结点newNode,其值为e,前驱结点为null,后继结点为f
将list的头结点指向newNode
如果插入之前list为空,则尾结点的也指向newNode
否则将原来的头结点f的前驱结点指向newNode
然后list元素个数size和修改次数modCount增加1

记住所有非基础类型变量都是引用即可理解所有的修改过程

linkLast(E e)::将指定的元素e插入list尾部,作为尾结点

创建尾结点的引用l,并构造一个新结点newNode,其值为e,前驱结点为l,后继结点为null
将list的尾结点指向newNode
如果插入之前list为空,则头结点的也指向newNode
否则将原来的尾结点l的后继结点指向newNode
然后list元素个数size和修改次数modCount增加1


linkBefore(E e, Node<E> succ):在非空结点succ前插入指定元素e

保证succ不为null
创建succ前驱结点的引用pred,并构造一个新结点newNode,其值为e,前驱结点为pred,后继结点为succ
succ的前驱结点指向newNode
如果prednull,则说明现在newNode应该为头结点
否则将pred的后继结点指向newNode
然后list元素个数size和修改次数modCount增加1


unlinkFirst(Node<E> f):断开第一个非空结点f

保证f为头结点且f不为null
保存f中的旧元素为element
创建f后继结点的引用next
然后将f中的引用全部置为null,好让GC回收f
将list的头结点指向next
如果nextnull,则说明现在list为空,尾结点也置为null

否则将next的前驱结点置为null(以前为f
然后list元素个数size减少1,修改次数modCount增加1
最后返回移除的元素element


unlinkLast(Node<E> l):断开最后一个非空结点l

保证l为尾结点且l不为null
保存l中的旧元素为element
创建l前驱结点的引用prev
然后将l中的引用全部置为null,好让GC回收f
将list的尾结点指向prev
如果prevnull,则说明现在list为空,头结点也置为null

否则将prev的后继结点置为null(以前为l
然后list元素个数size减少1,修改次数modCount增加1
最后返回移除的元素element



unlink(Node<E> x):断开指定非空结点x

保证x不为null
保存x中的旧元素为element
创建x前驱结点的引用prev
创建x后继结点的引用next
如果prevnull,则next应为现在的头结点

否则将prev的后继结点指向next,并清除xprev的引用


如果nextnull,则prev应为现在的尾结点

否则将next的前驱结点指向prev,并清除xnext的引用


清除xelement的引用,此时x中的引用已全部置为null
然后list元素个数size减少1,修改次数modCount增加1
最后返回移除的元素element




getFirst():返回list的第一个元素。

创建头结点的引用f
如果fnull,则表示list为空:
抛出NoSuchElementException异常
否则返回f中的元素f.item




getLast():返回list的最后一个元素。

创建尾结点的引用l
如果lnull,则表示list为空:
抛出NoSuchElementException异常
否则返回l中的元素l.item



removeFirst():移除list的第一个元素。

创建头结点的引用f
如果fnull,则表示list为空:
抛出NoSuchElementException异常
否则调用unlinkFirst方法断开结点f,并返回移除的元素




removeLast():移除list的最后一个元素。

创建尾结点的引用l
如果lnull,则表示list为空:
抛出NoSuchElementException异常
否则调用unlinkLast方法断开结点l,并返回移除的元素



addFirst(E e):将指定元素e插入list的开头。

调用linkFirst方法将e插入list头部,作为头结点





addLast(E e):将指定元素e插入list的尾部。

调用linkLast方法将e插入list尾部,作为尾结点





contains(Object o):如果此list中包含指定的元素,则返回true。更确切地讲,当且仅当此list包含至少一个满足
o==null ? e==null : o.equals(e)的元素e时,则返回true

调用indexOf方法判断是否存在索引





size():返回此list中的元素数。






add(E e):将指定的元素e添加到此list的尾部。

调用linkLast方法将e插入list尾部,作为尾结点
返回true











remove(Object o):移除此列表中首次出现的指定元素(如果存在)。如果列表不包含此元素,则list不做改动。更确切地讲,移除满足o==null ? get(i)==null : o.equals(get(i))的最低索引的元素(如果存在此类元素)。如果列表中包含指定的元素,则返回true(或者等同于这种情况:如果list由于调用方法而发生更改,则返回true)。

头结点first开始,分o是否为null两种情况,对所有结点进行遍历,如果找到则调用unlink方法移除元素。之后返回true



如果找不到返回false





addAll(Collection<? extends E> c):按照指定collectionc的迭代器所返回的元素顺序,将c中的所有元素添加到此list的尾部。如果正在进行此操作时修改c,那么此操作的行为是不确定的。(注意,如果c就是此列表并且非空,则此操作的行为是不确定的。)

调用带索引参数indexaddAll方法,并返回其结果







addAll(int index, Collection<? extends E> c):从指定的位置index开始,将指定collectionc中的所有元素插入到此list中。当前位于该位置的元素(如果有)以及所有后续元素向右移动(增加其索引)。新元素将按照c的迭代器所返回的元素顺序出现在list中。

调用checkPositionIndex方法对index进行范围检查

/**
 * Doubly-linked list implementation of the {@code List} and {@code Deque}
 * interfaces.  Implements all optional list operations, and permits all
 * elements (including {@code null}).
 *
 * <p>All of the operations perform as could be expected for a doubly-linked
 * list.  Operations that index into the list will traverse the list from
 * the beginning or the end, whichever is closer to the specified index.
 *
 * <p><strong>Note that this implementation is not synchronized.</strong>
 * If multiple threads access a linked list concurrently, and at least
 * one of the threads modifies the list structurally, it <i>must</i> be
 * synchronized externally.  (A structural modification is any operation
 * that adds or deletes one or more elements; merely setting the value of
 * an element is not a structural modification.)  This is typically
 * accomplished by synchronizing on some object that naturally
 * encapsulates the list.
 *
 * If no such object exists, the list should be "wrapped" using the
 * {@link Collections#synchronizedList Collections.synchronizedList}
 * method.  This is best done at creation time, to prevent accidental
 * unsynchronized access to the list:<pre>
 *   List list = Collections.synchronizedList(new LinkedList(...));</pre>
 *
 * <p>The iterators returned by this class's {@code iterator} and
 * {@code listIterator} methods are <i>fail-fast</i>: if the list is
 * structurally modified at any time after the iterator is created, in
 * any way except through the Iterator's own {@code remove} or
 * {@code add} methods, the iterator will throw a {@link
 * ConcurrentModificationException}.  Thus, in the face of concurrent
 * modification, the iterator fails quickly and cleanly, rather than
 * risking arbitrary, non-deterministic behavior at an undetermined
 * time in the future.
 *
 * <p>Note that the fail-fast behavior of an iterator cannot be guaranteed
 * as it is, generally speaking, impossible to make any hard guarantees in the
 * presence of unsynchronized concurrent modification.  Fail-fast iterators
 * throw {@code ConcurrentModificationException} on a best-effort basis.
 * Therefore, it would be wrong to write a program that depended on this
 * exception for its correctness:   <i>the fail-fast behavior of iterators
 * should be used only to detect bugs.</i>
