Predicate and Function functional interfaces in Java 8 or later

In this example you will see what are Predicate and Function functional interfaces in Java 8 or later version of Java. Functional interfaces provide target types for lambda expressions and method references. Each functional interface has a single abstract method, called functional method for that functional interface, to which the lambda expression’s parameter and return types are matched. The Predicate…

Difference Between Parallel Stream And CompletableFuture In Java

Parallel Stream Vs CompletableFuture I am going to discuss here CompletableFuture vs Parallel Stream in Java programming language. CompletableFuture extends Future with added advantage to allow the tasks finish in an ad hoc manner, whereas, in Parallel Stream task is divided into sub-tasks and run on separate threads to be completed faster. Both CompletableFuture and Parallel Stream were added in…

Parallelism Example in Java Stream API

I am going to show you how to work with parallel stream in Java 8 or higher version of Java. In parallel computing a task is divided into sub-tasks and these sub-tasks are computed parallelly in each separate threads and finally the result of the solution for each sub-tasks is combined. One of the features for computing parallelism is to…
