Java 8 - forEach method example with Map


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

package com.java2novice.java8;

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;
import java.util.Map.Entry;

public class ForEachMapEx {

	public static void main(String a[]) {

		Map<String, String> countryMap = new HashMap<>();
		countryMap.put("India", "Delhi");
		countryMap.put("USA", "Washington, D.C.");
		countryMap.put("Japan", "Tokyo");
		countryMap.put("Canada", "Ottawa");

		// iterate through Map normal way
		ForEachMapEx.iterateMap(countryMap);

		// iterate through Map using forEach method
		ForEachMapEx.iterateMapUsingForEach(countryMap);
	}

	public static void iterateMap(Map<String, String> countryMap) {

		System.out.println("<----------Iterating in normal way------------->");
		for(Entry<String, String> entry:countryMap.entrySet()) {
			System.out.println("Country: "+entry.getKey()+" : Capital: "+entry.getValue());
		}
	}

	public static void iterateMapUsingForEach(Map<String, String> countryMap) {

		System.out.println("\n<----------Iterating using forEach method------------>");
		countryMap.forEach((k,v)->System.out.println("Country: "+k+" : Capital: "+v));

		countryMap.forEach((k,v)->{
			// you can implement some business logic here..



		});
	}
}

Output:
<----------Iterating in normal way------------->
Country: Canada : Capital: Ottawa
Country: USA : Capital: Washington, D.C.
Country: Japan : Capital: Tokyo
Country: India : Capital: Delhi

<----------Iterating using forEach method------------>
Country: Canada : Capital: Ottawa
Country: USA : Capital: Washington, D.C.
Country: Japan : Capital: Tokyo
Country: India : Capital: Delhi

Knowledge Centre
String Vs StringBuffer
We know that String is immutable object. We can not change the value of a String object once it is initiated. If we try to change the value of the existing String object then it creates new object rather than changing the value of the existing object. So incase, we are going to do more modificatios on String, then use StringBuffer. StringBuffer updates the existing objects value, rather creating new object.
