forEach is a new method introduced in Java 8 to iterate over collections. Here is an example on forEach method to iterate over List.

package com.java2novice.java8;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;

public class ForEachListEx {

	public static void main(String a[]) {

		List<String> countryList = new ArrayList<>();
		countryList.add("India");
		countryList.add("USA");
		countryList.add("Japan");
		countryList.add("Canada");

		// iterate through List normal way
		ForEachListEx.iterateList(countryList);

		// iterate through List using forEach method
		ForEachListEx.iterateListUsingForEach(countryList);
	}

	public static void iterateList(List<String> countryList) {

		System.out.println("<-----Iterating in normal way----->");
		for(String country:countryList) {
			System.out.println(country);
		}
	}

	public static void iterateListUsingForEach(List<String> countryList) {

		System.out.println("\n<---Iterating using forEach method--->");
		countryList.forEach(country->System.out.println(country));

		countryList.forEach(country->{
			// you can implement some business logic here..
		});
	}
}

Output:
<-----Iterating in normal way----->

Knowledge Centre
doPost Vs doGet methods
doGet() method is used to get information, while doPost() method is used for posting information. doGet() requests can't send large amount of information and is limited to 240-255 characters. However, doPost()requests passes all of its data, of unlimited length. A doGet() request is appended to the request URL in a query string and this allows the exchange is visible to the client, whereas a doPost() request passes directly over the socket connection as part of its HTTP request body and the exchange are invisible to the client.
