2011-06-25 Saturday - f(x) totallylazy

...another interesting functional library for Java

http://code.google.com/p/totallylazy/

A functional library for Java that has the following features
  • Tries to be as lazy as possible just like Clojure's collection library
  • Works with Iterable, Iterator, Arrays, Char Sequences, Dates and Numbers (i.e virtually everything)
  • Follows the ML family of function / method names (Standard ML, oCaml, F#, Scala, Haskell)
  • Uses and extends Callable interface for maximum interop (i.e Can use with Clojure, Hazelcast)
  • Optionally supports using Hamcrest matchers as predicates
  • Supports chaining of all methods (Recommended) or the use of static imports for all methods.
  • Optionally supports creating Callables via dynamic proxies (requires cglib-2.2 and objenesis-1.2)
  • NEW Alpha support for SQL, think poor mans LINQ for Java.
