Java LinkedList Example

In this section we will discuss about the own implementation of Linked List in Java.

Linked List is a part of Data Structure. In Linked List nodes are connected by a link this link is referred to as one node contains the reference of next node. In this tutorial we will learn this by a simple example. In this example we will display an original list and then display its reverse order.


Here I am going to give a simple example which demonstrate how nodes are linked to each other and how can we displayed in their order as well as in its reverse order. In this example I have created Java classes. The Java class Link instantiates a reference variable next which will be used for linking the next value in the list. Then created a class named LinkList where written methods for printing the list value in its order and its reverse order. Then created a main class where created the list values and called methods for displaying list values.

Source Code

class Link
Link next;
String num;
Link (String num )
this.num = num;
public String toString()
return num;
}// close Link class
class LinkList
Link first; 
public void print(Link node)
System.out.print (node);
if (node.next!=null)
System.out.print (" -> ");
public void reverseList()
Link node3 = first;
Link node2 = null;
Link node1 = null;
while (node3!= null)
node1 = node2;
node2 = node3;
node3 = node2.next;
node2.next = node1;
first = node2; 
}// close LinkList
public class JavaSinglyLinkList
public static void main (String args[])
Link l1 = new Link("1");
Link l2 = new Link("2");
Link l3 = new Link("3");
Link l4 = new Link("4");
Link l5 = new Link("5");
l1.next = l2;
l2.next = l3;
l3.next = l4;
l4.next = l5;
LinkList LL = new LinkList();
LL.first = l1;
System.out.println ("\nCurrent list");
System.out.println ("\nList in reverse order");



When you will execute the JavaSinglyLinkList.java then the output will be as follows :
