In this article, we would like to show you how to filter ArrayList in Java.

Quick solution:

// string filter
 List<String> filtered = myArrayList.stream()
         .filter(string -> string.contains("substring"))
         .collect(Collectors.toList());

// integer filter
List<Integer> filtered = myArrayList.stream()
        .filter(number -> number > 2)
        .collect(Collectors.toList());

 

Practical examples

Example 1

In this example, we check if elements from fruits ArrayList contain specified substring and save the elements that does in a new filtered ArrayList.

import java.util.*;
import java.util.stream.Collectors;

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        List<String> fruits = new ArrayList<>();

        fruits.add("apple");
        fruits.add("banana");
        fruits.add("cherry");
        fruits.add("grapes");

        List<String> filtered = fruits.stream()
                .filter(string -> string.contains("ap"))
                .collect(Collectors.toList());

        System.out.println(filtered);
    }
}

Output:

[apple, grapes]

Example 2

In this example, we check if elements from numbers ArrayList satisfy the specified condition and save the elements that does in a new filtered ArrayList.

import java.util.*;
import java.util.stream.Collectors;

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        List<Integer> numbers = new ArrayList<>();

        numbers.add(1);
        numbers.add(2);
        numbers.add(3);
        numbers.add(4);

        List<Integer> filtered = numbers.stream()
                .filter(number -> number > 2)
                .collect(Collectors.toList());

        System.out.println(filtered);
    }
}

Output:

[3, 4]
