Pattern asPredicate() Method in Java with Examples

asPredicate() method of a Pattern class used to creates a predicate object which can be used to match a string.Predicate is a functional interface and can therefore be used as the assignment target for a lambda expression or method reference.

Syntax:

public Predicate asPredicate()

Parameters: This method accepts nothing as parameter.



Return value: This method returns a predicate which can be used for matching on a string.

Below programs illustrate the toString() method:

    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create a REGEX String
        String REGEX = "ee";
  
        // create the string
        // in which you want to search
        String actualString
            = "aaeebbeecceeddee";
  
        // create a Pattern using REGEX
        Pattern pattern
            = Pattern.compile(REGEX);
  
        // get Predicate Object
        Predicate<String> predicate
            = pattern.asPredicate();
  
        // check whether predicate match
        // with actualString
        boolean value = predicate
                            .test(actualString);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("value matched: "
                           + value);
    }
