Method Detail

filter
FT filter(Predicate<? super T> predicate)
Filters values, keeping only values where the predicate is true, returning a new Flow with just the retained values.

remove
FT remove(Predicate<? super T> predicate)
Removes values where the predicate returns true, returning a new Flow with just the remaining values.

each
FT each(Worker<? super T> worker)
Applies the worker to each element in the Flow, then returns the flow for further behaviors. Each is a nonlazy operation; it will fully realize the values of the Flow.

toList
List<T> toList()
Converts the Flow into an unmodifiable list of values. This is a nonlazy operation that will fully realize the values of the Flow.

toSet
Set<T> toSet()
Converts the Flow into an unmodifiable set of values. This is a nonlazy operation that will fully realize the values of the Flow.

isEmpty
boolean isEmpty()
Returns true if the Flow contains no values. This may realize the first value in the Flow.

first
T first()
Returns the first element in the Flow. Returns null for empty flows, but remember that null is a valid element within a flow, so useisEmpty()
to determine if a flow is actually empty. The first element can be realized without realizing the full Flow.

rest
FT rest()
Returns a new Flow containing all but the first element in this flow. If this flow has only a single element, or is empty, this will return an empty Flow.

count
int count()
Returns the number of values in this flow. This forces the realization of much of the flow (i.e., because each value will need to be passed through anyPredicate
s).

sort
FT sort(Comparator<T> comparator)
Sorts this flow using the comparator, forming a new flow. This is a nonlazy operation; it will fully realize the elements of the Flow.

take
FT take(int length)
Returns a new flow containing just the first elements from this Flow. Parameters:
length
 maximum number of values in the Flow

drop
FT drop(int length)
Returns a new flow with the first elements omitted. Parameters:
length
 number of values to drop

concat
FT concat(Collection<? extends T> collection)
Returns a new Flow with the elements in the collection appended to this Flow. This is a lazy operation. Note that the type of this method changed fromList
toCollection
in Tapestry 5.4. This is considered a compatible change. Parameters:
collection
 collection of elements to be appended

reduce
<A> A reduce(Reducer<A,T> reducer, A initial)
Applies a Reducer to the values of the Flow. The Reducer is passed the initial value and the first element from the Flow. The result is captured as the accumulator and passed to the Reducer with the next value from the Flow, and so on. The final accumulator value is returned. If the flow is empty, the initial value is returned. Reducing is a nonlazy operation; it will fully realize the values of the Flow.

removeNulls
FT removeNulls()
Removes null elements from the flow (null tuples from a ZippedFlow), leaving just the nonnull elements. This is a lazy operation. Since:
 5.3
