# Java FizzBuzz - FizzBuzz Solution In Java 8 with examples

## 1. Overview

In this tutorial, We'll learn how to write a java program to fizzbuzz solution in java language.

This is a fun game mostly played in elementary schools with your friends in schools.

FizzBuzz game rules:

This is a multiplayer game. When your turn comes then you have to say one number. If the number is multiple of 5 then you have to say "Fizz" in the french ascent. If the number is multiple of 7 then say "Buzz". If the number is multiple of 5 and 7 then say "FizzBuzz". If you can not say the right word for your number then you are out of the game. So must have to say the correct fizz buzzword to continue the game otherwise game will be continued without you. Whoever is alone in the game that person is the winner.

Let us implement the Fizz Buzz game in java language with the simple if-else conditions.

## 2. Java FizzBuzz Solution Using If else

The below logic is implemented using simple while loop and if-else conditions.

```package com.javaprogramto.programs.fizzbuzz;

/**
* Java program to implement fizz buzz solution
* @author javaprogramto.com
*
*/
public class FizzBuzzExample {

public static void main(String[] args) {

// limit the fizz buzz game
int limit = 100;

// staring number
int currentNumber = 1;

// running the while loop till it reaches the max limit
while (currentNumber <= limit) {

// checking for fizzbuzz
if (currentNumber % 5 == 0 && currentNumber % 7 == 0) {
System.out.println("FizzBuzz");

// checking for fizz
} else if (currentNumber % 5 == 0) {
System.out.println("Fizz");

// checking for buzz
} else if (currentNumber % 7 == 0 ) {
System.out.println("Buzz");
}  else {
System.out.println(currentNumber);
}

// incrementing the number by 1
currentNumber++;
}
}
}
```

Output:

## 3. FizzBuzz Solution in Java 8

We can implement the solution for FizzBuzz using java 8 stream API as below.

In the below example, we have used the ternary operator for condition evaluation.

IntStream.range() is to generate the numbers from 1 to 100

mapToObj(): uses the ternary operator and gets the right word.

forEach(): To iterate over the stream and print the values to console.

```public class FizzBuzzExampleJava8 {

public static void main(String[] args) {

// limit the fizz buzz game
int limit = 100;

// staring number
int currentNumber = 1;

// IntStream to generate the numbers range from 1 to 100 and mapToObj() to get the right fizz buzz word.
IntStream.rangeClosed(currentNumber, limit)
.mapToObj(i -> i % 5 == 0 ? (i % 7 == 0 ? "FizzBuzz" : "Fizz") : (i % 7 == 0 ? "Buzz" : i))
.forEach(System.out::println);
}
}
```

This program also produces the same output as in the above section.

## 4. Conclusion

In this article, we have seen how to implement the solution to the FizzBuzz problem using java before and after java 8 concepts.
