Delete a node from linked list specific position in java

Java program for Delete a node from linked list specific position. Here problem description and explanation.

// Java Program for
// Delete node at given index of linked list

// Linked list node
class LinkNode
{
	public int data;
	public LinkNode next;
	public LinkNode(int data)
	{
		this.data = data;
		this.next = null;
	}
}
public class SingleLL
{
	public LinkNode head;
	public LinkNode tail;
	public SingleLL()
	{
		this.head = null;
		this.tail = null;
	}
	// Add new node at the end of linked list
	public void addNode(int value)
	{
		// Create a new node
		LinkNode node = new LinkNode(value);
		if (this.head == null)
		{
			this.head = node;
		}
		else
		{
			this.tail.next = node;
		}
		this.tail = node;
	}
	// Display linked list element
	public void display()
	{
		if (this.head == null)
		{
			return;
		}
		LinkNode temp = this.head;
		// iterating linked list elements
		while (temp != null)
		{
			System.out.print(temp.data + " → ");
			// Visit to next node
			temp = temp.next;
		}
		System.out.println("NULL");
	}
	// Delete node at given position
	public void deleteAtIndex(int index)
	{
		LinkNode temp = this.head;
		if (this.head == null)
		{
			System.out.println("Empty linked list");
			return;
		}
		else if (index < 0)
		{
			System.out.println("Invalid positions");
			return;
		}
		else if (index == 1)
		{
			// Means deleting a first node
			if (this.tail == this.head)
			{
				// Only one node
				this.tail = null;
			}
			// make second node as head
			this.head = this.head.next;
		}
		else
		{
			int count = index - 1;
			// iterating linked list elements and find deleted node
			while (temp != null && count > 1)
			{
				// Visit to next node
				temp = temp.next;
				count--;
			}
			if (count == 1 && temp.next != null)
			{
				// Get deleted node
				LinkNode n = temp.next;
				if (n == this.tail)
				{
					// When delete last node
					this.tail = temp;
				}
				// Unlink the deleting node
				temp.next = n.next;
			}
			else
			{
				System.out.println(" Index " + 
                                   index + " are not present");
				return;
			}
		}
	}
	public static void main(String[] args)
	{
		SingleLL sll = new SingleLL();
		// Test with your index
		// Note index start with 1
		int index = 5;
		// Linked list
		// 10 → 20 → 30 → 40 → 50 → 60 → 70 → 80 → NULL
		sll.addNode(10);
		sll.addNode(20);
		sll.addNode(30);
		sll.addNode(40);
		sll.addNode(50);
		sll.addNode(60);
		sll.addNode(70);
		sll.addNode(80);
		System.out.println(" Before Delete Linked List");
		sll.display();
		// Delete node at 5-th position
		sll.deleteAtIndex(index);
		// Display linked list
		System.out.println(" After Delete Linked List");
		sll.display();
	}
}
Delete a Linked List node at a given position in java

Output

 Before Delete Linked List
10 → 20 → 30 → 40 → 50 → 60 → 70 → 80 → NULL
 After Delete Linked List
10 → 20 → 30 → 40 → 60 → 70 → 80 → NULL
