Here’s my attempt at FizzBuzz in Java8 with Lambdas. This will not go in the Pantheon of awesome code and I’m sure I’ll tweak it as I learn more. Oh and this is a self-contained implementation and unit test, just messing around.

Here are some thoughts:

  • Not sure if there’s a nicer way to do the predicates inline with the Stream API.
  • I wish if statements were expressions, that would clean up some of the code.
  • It’d be neato if FizzBuzz was conducive to using function composition to do a divBy15 but it isn’t needed for FizzBuzz.
  • Ranges are nice to see.
package javafunctional.java8.examples;

import org.junit.Test;

import java.util.function.Predicate;

import static org.junit.Assert.assertEquals;

public class FunctionLiterals {
    private Predicate<Integer> divBy3() { return arg -> (arg % 3) == 0;}
    private Predicate<Integer> divBy5() { return arg -> (arg % 5) == 0;}

    @Test public void testPredicates(){
        assertEquals(true, divBy3().test(3));
        assertEquals(true, divBy5().test(5));

    public String fizzBuzz(Integer intIn){
        String fizz = (divBy3().test(intIn))? "Fizz" : "";
        String buzz = (divBy5().test(intIn))? "Buzz" : "";
        return (fizz.isEmpty() && buzz.isEmpty())? intIn.toString() : fizz + buzz;

    @Test public void testFizzBuzz() {
        assertEquals("Fizz", fizzBuzz(9));
        assertEquals("Buzz", fizzBuzz(10));
        assertEquals("FizzBuzz", fizzBuzz(30));

    @Test public void runit(){
        IntStream.range(1, 100)
                .mapToObj(ii -> fizzBuzz(ii))
                .forEach(s -> System.out.println(s));
