The removeIf() method of Vector removes all of those elements from Vector which satisfies the condition passed as a parameter to this method. This method returns true if some element are removed from the Vector.
Java 8 has an important in-built functional interface which is Predicate. Predicate, or a condition checking function, which checks the given input for a given condition and returns a boolean result for the same indicating whether the condition was met or not.
public boolean removeIf(Predicate<? super E> filter)
Parameter: This method takes a parameter filter which represents a predicate which returns true for elements to be removed.
Returns: This method returns True if predicate returns true and some elements were removed.
Exception: This method throws NullPointerException if the specified filter is null.
Below programs illustrate removeIf() method of Vector:
Example 1: To demonstrate removeIf() method on vector which contains a set of Numbers and only the numbers which are divisible by 2 will be removed.
All Numbers not divisible by 2 are: 33 55
Example 2: To demonstrate removeIf() method on Vector which contains set of Students Names and to remove all 4 char long name.
Students name do not contain 4 char are Mohan Sohan Shabbir
Example 3: To demonstrate NullpointerException in removeIf() method on Vector.
