Java Iterator HackerRank Solution

Java Iterator class can help you to iterate through every element in a collection. Here is a simple example:

import java.util.*;
public class Example{

    public static void main(String []args){
        ArrayList mylist = new ArrayList();
        mylist.add("Hello");
        mylist.add("Java");
        mylist.add("4");
        Iterator it = mylist.iterator();
        while(it.hasNext()){
            Object element = it.next();
            System.out.println((String)element);
        }
    }
}

In this problem you need to complete a method func. The method takes an ArrayList as input. In that ArrayList there is one or more integer numbers, then there is a special string “###”, after that there are one or more other strings. A sample ArrayList may look like this:

element[0]=>42
element[1]=>10
element[2]=>"###"
element[3]=>"Hello"
element[4]=>"Java"

You have to modify the func method by editing at most 2 lines so that the code only prints the elements after the special string “###”. For the sample above the output will be:

Hello
Java

Note: The stdin doesn’t contain the string “###”, it is added in the main method.

import java.util.*;
public class Main{
	
   static Iterator func(ArrayList mylist){
      Iterator it=mylist.iterator();
      while(it.hasNext()){
         Object element =it.next();
         if(element instanceof String)//Hints: use instanceof operator

			break;
		}
      return it;
      
   }

   public static void main(String []args){
      ArrayList mylist = new ArrayList();
      Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
      int n = sc.nextInt();
      int m = sc.nextInt();
      for(int i = 0;i<n;i++){
         mylist.add(sc.nextInt());
      }
      
      mylist.add("###");
      for(int i=0;i<m;i++){
         mylist.add(sc.next());
      }
      
      Iterator it=func(mylist);
      while(it.hasNext()){
         Object element = it.next();
         System.out.println((String)element);
      }
   }
}
