A paradigm is a way or method to do some task. A programming paradigm is a way or style that does not refer to a specific programming language.

Types of paradigms in computers

  1. Procedural
  2. Object-Oriented
  3. Event Driven
  4. Functional
  5. Logic
  6. Aspect-oriented programming, etc


Out of all the above programming paradigms, we will learn about Functional programming and why it got introduced in Java 8.

We will also discuss the topics where Object-Oriented falls short and how functional programming steps in and chimes.

Note: Java supports both object-oriented and functional programming.

Java 8 introduced developers to functional programming with lambda expressions, Streams API, and much more!

Now, can we say Java supports multi-paradigm? Yes!! 🤩 Java supports multi-paradigm such as - generic, object-oriented, functional, imperative, reflective, concurrent, etc.
