@FunctionalInterface @GwtCompatible public interface Predicate<T> extends Predicate<T>
Predicate. Determines a true or false value for a given input.
As this interface extends
java.util.function.Predicate, an instance of this type may
be used as a
Predicate directly. To use a
java.util.function.Predicate where a
com.google.common.base.Predicate is expected, use the method reference
This interface is now a legacy type. Use
java.util.function.Predicate (or the
appropriate primitive specialization such as
IntPredicate) instead whenever possible.
Otherwise, at least reduce explicit dependencies on this type by using lambda expressions
or method references instead of classes, leaving your code easier to migrate in the future.
Predicates class provides common predicates and related utilities.
