Let’s explore ten Java programming features used frequently by developers in their day-to-day programming jobs.
Playing practically with Stream API
Let’s learn java stream API with a few practical examples
Parallel Streams Java Code Quiz
Using streams concurrently with the parallel method is a good idea to optimize performance. However, it’s not always the case that we can use the parallel method, for example, when we depend on the order of logic execution.
Neo Stream Search Java Challenge
Understanding the mechanics of the functional interface Predicate of a Stream is crucial if you want to create something meaningful with streams.
In this challenge, we will explore important key methods when we work with a stream so that it becomes clear for you what they do.
Without further ado, let’s go to the Java Challenge!
Soprano ofNullable stream Java Challenge
Since Java 9, it’s possible to use Optional with a stream when we need to manipulate values from a List.
In this Java Challenge, we will explore the use of a stream in an Optional!

Asynchronous CompletableFuture San Francisco Adventure Java Challenge
The Completable Future feature is powerful for better performance when running asynchronous methods.
In Java 5, there is the Future interface, however, the Future interface doesn’t have many methods that would help us to create robust code.
To solve the limitations of the Future interface, we have the CompletableFuture API with methods that will help us to build reliable high-performant software.
Now that we had the intro about CompletableFuture, let’s go to the Java Challenge!
Teeing: Hidden Gem in the Java API
Last week, I described a use-case for a custom Stream Collector. I received a intriguing comment on Twitter.
So I decided to investigate what is the teeing() method about, which returns a Collector that is a composite of two downstream collectors.
Every element passed to the resulting collector is processed by both downstream collectors, then their results are merged using the specified merge function into the final result.
This week, I learned about a nifty “new” feature of Optional that I want to share in this post. It’s available since Java 9, so its novelty is relative.
We start with a sequence to compute the total price of an order, for which it is nowadays more adequate to use streams instead of iterations.
Optional makes the code less readable! I believe that readability should trump code style every single time.
Fortunately, Optional offers a stream() method (since Java 9). It allows to simplify the functional pipeline. Functional code doesn’t necessarily mean readable code. With the last changes, I believe it’s both.
