How to find an object in a List by property using Java 8

Asked on May 01, 2016
I have a class 
public class Person {
private int pid;
private String location;
private String name;
I have overridden hashCode() and equals() methods.
Now I have a List<Person>. 

How to find an object in our list by property(suppose pid) using Java 8?

Create a Predicate and use Java 8 Filter.

Person getPersonById(int pid) {
Predicate<Person> personPredicate = p-> p.getPid() == pid;
Person obj =;
return obj;

It will return Person object with given pid fetching from List.
