Let’s Get to the Rapids: Java 8 Stream Performance



Maurice Naftalin discusses the factors that control stream performance, how streams begin and end as well as the work that they do along the way, and when to use the built-in parallelization support offered by streams. Maurice disentangles these problems and creates guidelines for getting the best performance from Java 8 streams.


Maurice Naftalin has worked in the software industry for four decades as developer, researcher, trainer and author. He is a Java Champion, author of several books on the features introduced in Java 5 and Java 8, and a JavaOne Rockstar in 2013 and 2014.
