Java program to remove elements from HashSet collection based on a specified predicate

Given a HashSet, we have to remove elements based on a specified predicate.

Problem statement

In this program, we will create a set using the HashSet collection to store integer elements. Then we will remove items from the HashSet collection using the removeIf() method.

Source Code

The source code to remove elements from the HashSet collection based on specified predicate is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

// Java program to remove elements from HashSet collection 
// based on a specified predicate

import java.util.*;

public class Main {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    HashSet < Integer > nums = new HashSet();


    System.out.println("Set elements: " + nums);

    if (nums.removeIf(val -> (val > 3)))
      System.out.println("Items removed successfully.");
      System.out.println("Unable to remove Items.");

    System.out.println("Set elements: " + nums);


Set elements: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
Items removed successfully.
Set elements: [1, 2, 3]


In the above program, we imported the "java.util.*" package to use the HashSet collection. Here, we created a public class Main that contains a main() method.

The main() method is the entry point for the program. Here, we created a set nums to store integer data elements using HashSet collection. Then we removed elements from set nums based on a specific predicate using the removeIf() method and printed the updated HashSet. The removeIf() method returns true on successful removal, otherwise, it returns false.
