Stream toArray() in Java with Examples

Stream toArray() returns an array containing the elements of this stream. It is a terminal operation i.e, it may traverse the stream to produce a result or a side-effect. After the terminal operation is performed, the stream pipeline is considered consumed, and can no longer be used.

Syntax :

Object[] toArray()

Return Value : The function returns an array containing the elements of this stream.

import java.util.*;
import java.util.stream.Stream;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Creating a Stream of Integers
        Stream<Integer> stream = Stream.of(5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10);
  
        // Using Stream toArray()
        Object[] arr = stream.toArray();
  
        // Displaying the elements in array arr
        System.out.println(Arrays.toString(arr));
    }
