protonpack

Maven Central Build Status

A small collection of Stream utilities for Java 8. Protonpack provides the following:

  • takeWhile and takeUntil
  • skipWhile and skipUntil
  • zip and zipWithIndex
  • unfold
  • MapStream
  • aggregate
  • Streamable<T>
  • unique collector

For full API documentation, see (http://poetix.github.io/protonpack).

takeWhile

Takes elements from the stream while the supplied condition is met. takeUntil does the same, but with the condition negated.

Stream<Integer> infiniteInts = Stream.iterate(0, i -> i + 1);
Stream<Integer> finiteInts = StreamUtils.takeWhile(infiniteInts, i -> i < 10);

assertThat(finiteInts.collect(Collectors.toList()),
           hasSize(10));

skipWhile

Skips elements from the stream while the supplied condition is met. skipUntil does the same, but with the condition negated.

Stream<Integer> ints = Stream.of(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10);
Stream<Integer> skipped = StreamUtils.skipWhile(ints, i -> i < 4);

List<Integer> collected = skipped.collect(Collectors.toList());

assertThat(collected,
           contains(4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10));

zip

Combines two streams using the supplied combiner function.

Stream<String> streamA = Stream.of("A", "B", "C");
Stream<String> streamB  = Stream.of("Apple", "Banana", "Carrot", "Doughnut");

List<String> zipped = StreamUtils.zip(streamA,
                                      streamB,
                                      (a, b) -> a + " is for " + b)
                                 .collect(Collectors.toList());

assertThat(zipped,
           contains("A is for Apple", "B is for Banana", "C is for Carrot"));

unfold

Generates a (potentially infinite) stream using a generator that can indicate the end of the stream at any time by returning Optional.empty().

Stream<Integer> unfolded = StreamUtils.unfold(1, i ->
    (i < 10)
        ? Optional.of(i + 1)
        : Optional.empty());

assertThat(unfolded.collect(Collectors.toList()),
           contains(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10));

stream

Transforms a source type into a stream

stream(Optional<T> optional):

Stream<Item> items = idStream.flatMap(id -> StreamUtils.stream(fetchItem(id));

Streamable

Streamable is to Stream as Iterable is to Iterator. Useful when you will want to stream repeatedly over some source.

unique

A collector that returns the one and only item in a stream, if present, or throws an exception if multiple items are found.

assertThat(Stream.of(1, 2, 3).filter(i -> i > 3).collect(CollectorUtils.unique()),
           equalTo(Optional.empty()));

assertThat(Stream.of(1, 2, 3).filter(i -> i > 2).collect(CollectorUtils.unique()),
           equalTo(Optional.of(3)));

// Throws NonUniqueValueException
Stream.of(1, 2, 3).filter(i -> i > 1).collect(CollectorUtils.unique());

toFutureList

A collector that converts a stream of CompletableFuture<T> into a CompletableFuture<List<T>>, which completes exceptionally if (and as soon as) any of the futures in the list completes exceptionally.

Function<Integer, CompletableFuture<Integer>> processAsynchronously = i -> CompletableFuture.completedFuture(i * 2);
assertThat(
        Stream.of(1, 2, 3).map(processAsynchronously)
                .collect(CompletableFutures.toFutureList())
                .get(),
        contains(2, 4, 6));
