DoubleStream findFirst() with examples

DoubleStream findFirst() returns an OptionalDouble (a container object which may or may not contain a non-null value) describing the first element of this stream, or an empty OptionalDouble if the stream is empty.

Syntax :

OptionalDouble findFirst()

Parameters :



  1. OptionalDouble : A container object which may or may not contain a non-null value.

Return Value : The function returns an OptionalDouble describing the first element of this stream, or an empty OptionalDouble if the stream is empty.

Note : findFirst() is a terminal-short-circuiting operation of Stream interface. This method returns any first element satisfying the intermediate operations.

Example 1 : findFirst() method on Double Stream.

        // Using DoubleStream findFirst() to return

        // of the stream
        OptionalDouble answer = stream.findFirst();
  
        // if the stream is empty, an empty
        // OptionalDouble is returned.
        if (answer.isPresent())
            System.out.println(answer.getAsDouble());
        else
            System.out.println("no value");
    }
}
