Using Java 8 Streams to Process and Analyze Data in Memory

by Jose Paumard

The Stream API is an in-memory implementation of the map/filter/reduce pattern, introduced in Java 8. In this course, you will learn the basics of this API, how you can use it to improve your code, and how this implementation works internally.

What you'll learn

The Stream API is now one of the two main API used to processed data in Java. It implements a very popular pattern: map/filter/reduce. In this course, Using Java 8 Streams to Process and Analyze Data in Memory, you will learn three things. First, you will see how this map/filter/reduce pattern works and how you can recognize its use in existing code. Then, you will explore how it has been implemented by the Stream API, and what the details are of this implementation to fully understand how you can leverage this API to write clean and efficient code. Finally, you will discover how to implement common use cases that will help you use this API very quickly in your applications. By the end of this course, you will have explored the theory to fully understand both the algorithm and the implementation.

About the author

Passionate about programming computers for over 20 years, Jose made his debut in assembler and C, C for SIMD parallel machines before adopting Java as an object-oriented language, indispensable to most major modern applications. He brings his expertise and capacity for analysis and synthesis to many projects, mainly in the lower layers, close to the data, but also on complex UI design, or in the browser.
