There are many ways to create a thread. One of those ways is implementin Runnable interface. Again there are several ways to provide an implementation for it. One of those ways is, using lambda to provide an implementation. If you don’t know anything about lambda, then you can read it here. You are gonna need […]
Implement runnable interface using a class in java.
Runnable is a Functional Interface. It has one abstract method called run. To make use of this class, we need to provide an implementation for this method. In practice, compiler only needs a non-abstract method. You can provide a empty body and that will be enough. The implementation need not be meaningful. Here is a simple class, […]
Using java lambda to create threads using runnable interface in java
I am using jdk-11 for this tutorial. We are going to use lambda functions to create a thread in java. In this tutorial, we will implement Runnable interface. Our lambda implementation will print numbers from the range 1 to 10. Step 1 :- implement Runnable interface Runnable runThroughLambda = () -> IntStream.rangeClosed(1, 10) .forEach(System.out::println); In above code, I […]
What is lambdas in Java – Understanding Lamdas in Java
Lambdas were introduced in Java 8. For me they are first step towards functional programming in java. Lambdas are a little like anonymous class. They are similar in the way they are defined and passed around as a parameter in functions. But, lambdas are not exactly an anonymous class. After compilation, an anonymous class has […]
