IntStream sorted() in Java

IntStream sorted() returns a stream consisting of the elements of this stream in sorted order. It is a stateful intermediate operation i.e, it may incorporate state from previously seen elements when processing new elements. Stateful intermediate operations may need to process the entire input before producing a result. For example, one cannot produce any results from sorting a stream until one has seen all elements of the stream.

Syntax :

IntStream sorted()

Where, IntStream is a sequence of primitive int-valued 
elements. This is the int primitive specialization of Stream.

Exception : If the elements of this stream are not Comparable, a java.lang.ClassCastException may be thrown when the terminal operation is executed.

Return Value : IntStream sorted() method returns the new stream.

Example 1 : Using IntStream sorted() to sort the numbers in given IntStream.
