Class Overview

Implementations of Collector that implement various useful reduction operations, such as accumulating elements into collections, summarizing elements according to various criteria, etc.

The following are examples of using the predefined collectors to perform common mutable reduction tasks:

// Accumulate names into a List
     List<String> list = people.stream().map(Person::getName).collect(Collectors.toList());

     // Accumulate names into a TreeSet
     Set<String> set = people.stream().map(Person::getName).collect(Collectors.toCollection(TreeSet::new));

     // Convert elements to strings and concatenate them, separated by commas
     String joined = things.stream()
                           .map(Object::toString)
                           .collect(Collectors.joining(", "));

     // Compute sum of salaries of employee
     int total = employees.stream()
                          .collect(Collectors.summingInt(Employee::getSalary)));

     // Group employees by department
     Map<Department, List<Employee>> byDept
         = employees.stream()
                    .collect(Collectors.groupingBy(Employee::getDepartment));

     // Compute sum of salaries by department
     Map<Department, Integer> totalByDept
         = employees.stream()
                    .collect(Collectors.groupingBy(Employee::getDepartment,
                                                   Collectors.summingInt(Employee::getSalary)));

     // Partition students into passing and failing
     Map<Boolean, List<Student>> passingFailing =
         students.stream()
                 .collect(Collectors.partitioningBy(s -> s.getGrade() >= PASS_THRESHOLD));

Public Methods

public static Collector<T, ?, Double> averagingDouble (ToDoubleFunction<? super T> mapper)

Returns a Collector that produces the arithmetic mean of a double-valued function applied to the input elements. If no elements are present, the result is 0.

The average returned can vary depending upon the order in which values are recorded, due to accumulated rounding error in addition of values of differing magnitudes. Values sorted by increasing absolute magnitude tend to yield more accurate results. If any recorded value is a NaN or the sum is at any point a NaN then the average will be NaN.

Parameters
mapper a function extracting the property to be summed
Returns
  • a Collector that produces the sum of a derived property

public static Collector<T, ?, Double> averagingInt (ToIntFunction<? super T> mapper)

Returns a Collector that produces the arithmetic mean of an integer-valued function applied to the input elements. If no elements are present, the result is 0.

Parameters
mapper a function extracting the property to be summed
Returns
  • a Collector that produces the sum of a derived property

public static Collector<T, ?, Double> averagingLong (ToLongFunction<? super T> mapper)

Returns a Collector that produces the arithmetic mean of a long-valued function applied to the input elements. If no elements are present, the result is 0.

Parameters
mapper a function extracting the property to be summed
Returns
  • a Collector that produces the sum of a derived property

public static Collector<T, A, RR> collectingAndThen (Collector<T, A, R> downstream, Function<R, RR> finisher)

Adapts a Collector to perform an additional finishing transformation. For example, one could adapt the toList() collector to always produce an immutable list with:

List<String> people
         = people.stream().collect(collectingAndThen(toList(), Collections::unmodifiableList));
 

Parameters
downstream a collector
finisher a function to be applied to the final result of the downstream collector
Returns
  • a collector which performs the action of the downstream collector, followed by an additional finishing step

public static Collector<T, ?, Long> counting ()

Returns a Collector accepting elements of type T that counts the number of input elements. If no elements are present, the result is 0.

Returns
  • a Collector that counts the input elements

public static Collector<T, ?, Map<K, List<T>>> groupingBy (Function<? super T, ? extends K> classifier)

Returns a Collector implementing a "group by" operation on input elements of type T, grouping elements according to a classification function, and returning the results in a Map.

The classification function maps elements to some key type K. The collector produces a Map<K, List<T>> whose keys are the values resulting from applying the classification function to the input elements, and whose corresponding values are Lists containing the input elements which map to the associated key under the classification function.

There are no guarantees on the type, mutability, serializability, or thread-safety of the Map or List objects returned.

Parameters
classifier the classifier function mapping input elements to keys
Returns
  • a Collector implementing the group-by operation

public static Collector<T, ?, M> groupingBy (Function<? super T, ? extends K> classifier, Supplier<M> mapFactory, Collector<? super T, A, D> downstream)

Returns a Collector implementing a cascaded "group by" operation on input elements of type T, grouping elements according to a classification function, and then performing a reduction operation on the values associated with a given key using the specified downstream Collector. The Map produced by the Collector is created with the supplied factory function.

The classification function maps elements to some key type K. The downstream collector operates on elements of type T and produces a result of type D. The resulting collector produces a Map<K, D>.

For example, to compute the set of last names of people in each city, where the city names are sorted:

Map<City, Set<String>> namesByCity
         = people.stream().collect(groupingBy(Person::getCity, TreeMap::new,
                                              mapping(Person::getLastName, toSet())));

public static Collector<T, ?, List<T>> toList ()

Returns a Collector that accumulates the input elements into a new List. There are no guarantees on the type, mutability, serializability, or thread-safety of the List returned; if more control over the returned List is required, use toCollection(Supplier).

Returns
  • a Collector which collects all the input elements into a List, in encounter order

public static Collector<T, ?, Map<K, U>> toMap (Function<? super T, ? extends K> keyMapper, Function<? super T, ? extends U> valueMapper, BinaryOperator<U> mergeFunction)

Returns a Collector that accumulates elements into a Map whose keys and values are the result of applying the provided mapping functions to the input elements.

If the mapped keys contains duplicates (according to equals(Object)), the value mapping function is applied to each equal element, and the results are merged using the provided merging function.

Parameters
keyMapper a mapping function to produce keys
valueMapper a mapping function to produce values
mergeFunction a merge function, used to resolve collisions between values associated with the same key, as supplied to merge(Object, Object, BiFunction)
Returns
  • a Collector which collects elements into a Map whose keys are the result of applying a key mapping function to the input elements, and whose values are the result of applying a value mapping function to all input elements equal to the key and combining them using the merge function

public static Collector<T, ?, M> toMap (Function<? super T, ? extends K> keyMapper, Function<? super T, ? extends U> valueMapper, BinaryOperator<U> mergeFunction, Supplier<M> mapSupplier)

Returns a Collector that accumulates elements into a Map whose keys and values are the result of applying the provided mapping functions to the input elements.

If the mapped keys contains duplicates (according to equals(Object)), the value mapping function is applied to each equal element, and the results are merged using the provided merging function. The Map is created by a provided supplier function.

Parameters
keyMapper a mapping function to produce keys
valueMapper a mapping function to produce values
mergeFunction a merge function, used to resolve collisions between values associated with the same key, as supplied to merge(Object, Object, BiFunction)
mapSupplier a function which returns a new, empty Map into which the results will be inserted
Returns
  • a Collector which collects elements into a Map whose keys are the result of applying a key mapping function to the input elements, and whose values are the result of applying a value mapping function to all input elements equal to the key and combining them using the merge function

public static Collector<T, ?, Map<K, U>> toMap (Function<? super T, ? extends K> keyMapper, Function<? super T, ? extends U> valueMapper)

Returns a Collector that accumulates elements into a Map whose keys and values are the result of applying the provided mapping functions to the input elements.

If the mapped keys contains duplicates (according to equals(Object)), an IllegalStateException is thrown when the collection operation is performed. If the mapped keys may have duplicates, use toMap(Function, Function, BinaryOperator) instead.

Parameters
keyMapper a mapping function to produce keys
valueMapper a mapping function to produce values
Returns
  • a Collector which collects elements into a Map whose keys and values are the result of applying mapping functions to the input elements

public static Collector<T, ?, Set<T>> toSet ()

Returns a Collector that accumulates the input elements into a new Set. There are no guarantees on the type, mutability, serializability, or thread-safety of the Set returned; if more control over the returned Set is required, use toCollection(Supplier).

This is an unordered Collector.

Returns
  • a Collector which collects all the input elements into a Set
