The first IsEmpty operation operates on an empty array and places the result of true in the top position in the result array. The second IsEmpty operation operates on an array with a single value of 1 and places the result of false in the second position in the result array. The third IsEmpty operation operates on an array with a two values and places the result of false in the third position in the result array.

System.out.println(
  client.query(
    Arr(
        IsEmpty( Arr()),
        IsEmpty( Arr(Value(1))),
        IsEmpty( Arr(Value(1), Value(2), Value(3)))
    )
  ).get());
[true, false, false]
