The primary difference between Stack and Queue Data Structures is that Stack follows LIFO while Queue follows FIFO data structure type. LIFO refers to Last In First Out. It means that when we put data in a Stack, it processes the last entry first. Conversely, FIFO refers to First In First Out. I
In the world of computer science and programming, data structures play a vital role in organizing and manipulating data efficiently. One such fundamental data structure is the queue. Queues provide a powerful mechanism for managing elements in a specific order and are used extensively in various applications, from operating systems to real-time systems and beyond.
The Queue interface is present in java.util package and extends the Collection interface is used to hold the elements about to be processed in FIFO(First In First Out) order. It is an ordered list of objects with its use limited to inserting elements at the end of the list and deleting elements from the start of the list, (i.e.), it follows the FIFO or the First-In-First-Out principle.
