Lets say you have Student class as below:

Lets say you have list of student objects in studentList and you need to filter all male students.

Here we have used stream‘s filter method to filter list and then collect the result to another list with Collectors.toList().

Java 8 filter,findAny or orElse method

You can use stream’s filter method to filter list and use findAny and orElse method based on conditions.
For example:You want to filter Student with name John, if you do not find it in the list then return null.

Lets create a main class as below:

When you run above program, you will get below output:

Male students are :[Student [id=1, name=Arpit, gender=M, age=19], Student [id=2, name=John, gender=M, age=17], Student [id=4, name=Martin, gender=M, age=21]] Student with Name john :Student [id=2, name=John, gender=M, age=17]
