In this article, we would like to show you how to remove the last element from ArrayList in Java.

Quick solution:

int last = myArrayList.size() - 1;  // calculate index of last element
myArrayList.remove(last);           // remove last element by index

 

Practical example

In this example, we calculate the index of the last element in fruits ArrayList and remove it using remove() method.

import java.util.*;

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        List<String> fruits = new ArrayList<>();

        // add items to the ArrayList
        fruits.add("Apple");
        fruits.add("Banana");
        fruits.add("Cherry");

        // calculate index of the last element
        int last = fruits.size() - 1;

        // remove last element by index
        fruits.remove(last);

        System.out.println(fruits);  // [Apple, Banana]
    }
}

Output:

[Apple, Banana]
