Java 8 | Collectors averagingInt() with Examples
Collectors averagingInt(ToIntFunction<? super T> mapper) method is used to find the mean of the integers passed in the parameters. This method returns a Collector that produces the arithmetic mean of an integer-valued function applied to the input elements. If no elements are passed as the input elements, then this method returns 0.
The formula used by this method to calculate arithmetic mean is:
public static <T> Collector<T, ?, Double> averagingInt(ToIntFunction<? super T> mapper)
- Interface Collector<T, A, R>: A mutable reduction operation that accumulates input elements into a mutable result container, optionally transforming the accumulated result into a final representation after all input elements have been processed. Reduction operations can be performed either sequentially or in parallel.
- T: The type of input elements to the reduction operation.
- A: The mutable accumulation type of the reduction operation.
- R: The result type of the reduction operation.
- Double: The Double class wraps a value of the primitive type double in an object. An object of type Double contains a single field whose type is double.
- ToIntFunction: Represents a function that produces an int-valued result.
Parameters: This method takes a mandatory parameter mapper which is of type ToIntFunction. It is a Function which extracts an int type of value from a stream.
Below are examples to illustrate averagingInt() method:
Program 2: When no input element is passed as the parameter to averagingInt() method.
