Java 8 Stream flatmap method example.


In a very simple note, Stream.flatMap() is used to convert a Stream of Stream into a list of values.

The flatMap() operation has the effect of applying a one-to-many transformation to the elements of the stream, and then flattening the resulting elements into a new stream.

This page gives a simple example on getting count of distinct elements in a file. In this example, each line represents a stream, each steam(line) is broken into words which represents again a independent stream. Now all these multiple streams will be aggregated to a single stream using flatMap method.

package com.java2novice.streams;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.nio.file.Files;
import java.nio.file.Paths;
import java.util.Arrays;

public class StreamFlatMapEx {

	public static void main(String a[]) {

		try {
			long noOfWords = Files.lines(Paths.get("C:\testfile.txt"))
									.flatMap(l->Arrays.stream(l.split(" +")))
									.distinct()
									.count();
			System.out.println("noOfWords: "+noOfWords);
		} catch (IOException e) {
			// TODO Auto-generated catch block
			e.printStackTrace();
		}
	}
}

Output:
noOfWords: 14

Inner class and Anonymous class
Inner class: classes defined in other classes, including those defined in methods are called inner classes. An inner class can have any accessibility including private.

Anonymous class: Anonymous class is a class defined inside a method without a name and is instantiated and declared in the same place and cannot have explicit constructors.
Famous Quotations
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
