Convert a Set to Stream in Java

Set interface extends Collection interface and Collection has stream() method that returns a sequential stream of the collection.

Below given are some examples to understand the implementation in a better way.

// Java code for converting 
// Set to Stream
import java.util.*;
import java.util.stream.Stream;
  
class GFG {
      
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args) {
      
    // Creating an Integer HashSet
    Set<Integer> set = new HashSet<>();
      
    // adding elements in set
    set.add(2);
    set.add(4);
    set.add(6);
    set.add(8);
    set.add(10);
    set.add(12);
      
    // converting Set to Stream
    Stream<Integer> stream = set.stream();
      
    // displaying elements of Stream using lambda expression
    stream.forEach(elem->System.out.print(elem+" "));
      
    }

Note : Objects that you insert in HashSet are not guaranteed to be inserted in same order. Objects are inserted based on their hash code.
