forEach loop Java 8 for Map entry set

The Solution to forEach loop Java 8 for Map entry set is


Read the javadoc: Map<K, V>.forEach() expects a BiConsumer<? super K,? super V> as argument, and the signature of the BiConsumer<T, U> abstract method is accept(T t, U u).

So you should pass it a lambda expression that takes two inputs as argument: the key and the value:

map.forEach((key, value) -> {
    System.out.println("Key : " + key + " Value : " + value);
});

Your code would work if you called forEach() on the entry set of the map, not on the map itself:

map.entrySet().forEach(entry -> {
    System.out.println("Key : " + entry.getKey() + " Value : " + entry.getValue());
});
