Stream noneMatch() method in Java with examples

Stream noneMatch(Predicate predicate) returns whether no elements of this stream match the provided predicate. It may not evaluate the predicate on all elements if not necessary for determining the result. This is a short-circuiting terminal operation. A terminal operation is short-circuiting if, when presented with infinite input, it may terminate in finite time.
Syntax :

boolean noneMatch(Predicate<? super T> predicate)

Where, T is the type of the input to the predicate
and the function returns true if either no elements 
of the stream match the provided predicate or the
stream is empty, otherwise false.

Note : If the stream is empty then true is returned and the predicate is not evaluated.

Example 1 : To check that there is no string of length 4.

        // Displaying the result
        System.out.println(answer);
    }
