Java 8 – How to convert Iterable to Stream


A quick guide to convert Iterable to Stream of Strings. Example Program on how to Collection api Iterable interface to Stream.

1. Introduction

In this article, You'll be learning how to convert Iterable to Stream API.

Iterable is an interface in java and a method spliterator() is added to in Java 8 release.

2. Convert Iterable to Stream in Java 8

Since the Iterable interface has a spliterator() method and it is easier to convert it into a Stream.

Iterable to Stream in Java 8


default Spliterator spliterator()

Creates a Spliterator over the elements described by this Iterable.

First of all, Let us create a List and can assign to the iterable.

Iterable<String> iterable = Arrays.asList("Iterable", "to", "Stream", "in", "Java 8");

Next,  Convert iterable to Stream using StreamSupport.stream() method and pass iterator.spliterator() to it.

Stream<String> stream = StreamSupport.stream(iterable.spliterator(), false);

3. Performing Stream Operations

Next, let us perform a simple Stream operation after converting Iterable to Stream with StreamSupport.stream() method.

package com.javaprogramto.java8.streams.iterable;

import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.stream.Collectors;
import java.util.stream.Stream;
import java.util.stream.StreamSupport;

public class IterableToStream {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        Iterable<String> iterable = Arrays.asList("Iterable", "to", "Stream", "in", "Java 8");

        Stream<String> stream = StreamSupport.stream(iterable.spliterator(), false);

        List<String> list = stream.map(string -> string.toLowerCase()).collect(Collectors.toList());

        list.forEach( value -> System.out.println(value));
