Java Stream - allMatch() With Examples

In JavaStream API there are two methods anyMatch() and allMatch() where anyMatch() is used to check whether any element in the Stream matches the given condition, allMatch() is used to check if all the elements in the Stream match the given condition. In this tutorial we’ll try to understand allMatch() method in Java Stream.

Syntax of allMatch() method

boolean allMatch(Predicate<? super T> predicate)

Here predicate is a parameter of type Predicate functional interface that provides the condition to be applied to elements of this stream.

Method returns true if all elements of the stream match the provided predicate, otherwise false. If Stream is empty then also true is returned.

allMatch is a short-circuiting terminal operation. It’s a terminal operation means the stream pipeline is considered consumed after allMatch() operation, and can no longer be used. It is also short-circuiting which means when presented with infinite input, it may terminate in finite time.

allMatch() Java examples

1. In this example we’ll use allMatch() to quickly verify if all the elements in the List are even numbers or not.

import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.List;

public class AllMatchStream {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    List<Integer> numList = Arrays.asList(2, 4, 6, 12, 20);
    boolean result = -> (n%2 == 0));



2. In this example we’ll have a Stream of Employee objects where we want to check whether all employees have salary greater than 10000 or not.

Employee class

public class Employee {
  private String empId;
  private int age;
  private String name;
  private char gender;
  private int salary;
  Employee(String empId, int age, String name, char gender, int salary){
    this.empId = empId;
    this.age = age; = name;
    this.gender = gender;
    this.salary = salary;
  public String getEmpId() {
    return empId;

  public int getAge() {
    return age;

  public String getName() {
    return name;

  public char getGender() {
    return gender;

  public int getSalary() {
    return salary;
  public String toString() {
    return "Emp Id: " +  getEmpId() + " Name: " + getName() + " Age: " + getAge();
public class AllMatchStream {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    List<Employee> empList = Arrays.asList(new Employee("E001", 40, "Ram", 'M', 5000), 
                new Employee("E002", 35, "Shelly", 'F', 7000), 
                new Employee("E003", 24, "Mark", 'M', 9000), 
                new Employee("E004", 37, "Ritu", 'F', 11000),
                new Employee("E005", 32, "Anuj", 'M', 12000), 
        new Employee("E006", 28, "Amy", 'F', 14000)); 
    boolean result = -> e.getSalary() > 10000);


Result is false as not all of the employee objects satisfy the condition.
