Java 8 - forEach method example with List


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----->
