Method Summary
 boolean hasNext()

 E next()
          Returns the next element in the iteration.
 void remove()
          Removes from the underlying collection the last element returned by this iterator (optional operation).
 

Method Detail

hasNext

boolean hasNext()
Returns true if the iteration has more elements. (In other words, returns true if next() would return an element rather than throwing an exception.)

Returns:
true if the iteration has more elements

next

E next()
Returns the next element in the iteration.

Returns:
the next element in the iteration
Throws:
NoSuchElementException - if the iteration has no more elements

remove

void remove()
Removes from the underlying collection the last element returned by this iterator (optional operation). This method can be called only once per call to next(). The behavior of an iterator is unspecified if the underlying collection is modified while the iteration is in progress in any way other than by calling this method.

Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if the remove operation is not supported by this iterator
IllegalStateException - if the next method has not yet been called, or the remove method has already been called after the last call to the next method
