How to For Each in Hash Map in Java 8 using Lambda Expressions

Lambda Expression Java 8

In Java 1.8 (Java 8) this has become lot easier by using forEach method from Aggregate operations(Stream operations) that looks similar to iterators from Iterable Interface.

Just copy paste below statement to your code and rename the HashMap variable from hm to your HashMap variable to print out key-value pair.

HashMap<Integer,Integer> hm = new HashMap<Integer, Integer>();
/*
 *     Logic to put the Key,Value pair in your HashMap hm
 */

// Print the key value pair in one line.
hm.forEach((k,v) -> System.out.println("key: "+k+" value:"+v));

Below is the sample code that i tried using Lambda Expression. This stuff is so cool. Must try.

HashMap<Integer,Integer> hm = new HashMap<Integer, Integer>();

    Random rand = new Random(47);

    int i=0;
    while(i<100)
    {
        i++;
        int key = rand.nextInt(20);
        int value = rand.nextInt(50);
        System.out.println("Inserting key: "+key+" Value: "+value);
        Integer imap =hm.put(key,value);
        if( imap == null)
        {
            System.out.println("Inserted");
        }           
        else
        {
            System.out.println("Replaced with "+imap);
        }               
    }

    hm.forEach((k,v) -> System.out.println("key: "+k+" value:"+v));

Also one can use Spliterator for the same.

Spliterator sit = hm.entrySet().spliterator();

UPDATE


Including documentation links to Oracle Docs. For more on Lambda go to this link and must read Aggregate Operations and for Spliterator go to this link.
