Functional Interface:-You cannot use any interface with lambda expression. Only interfaces with one abstract method can be used with lambda expression. These type of interfaces are also called function interfaces.Java 8 comes with many functional interfaces that you can use in your code.Predicate ->This functional interface is used to check if some condition is true or not. It has one abstract method named test that takes a value of type T and returns aboolean. Let's say we want to define a predicate that filters out all the even number from a list.Predicate evenNumbers = name -> name % 2 == 0;

boolean test =  evenNumber.test(6);Consumer ->This functional interface represents an operation that accepts a single input argument and returns no result. It has a method called accept that take value of type Tand has void return type.Consumer messageConsumer = message -> System.out.println(message);

messageConsumer.apply(“message”)Function ->This functional interface takes one argument as input and produces a result. Let's say we want to find the length of a string.Function<String, Integer> numberOfLetters = s -> s.length();

Integer length = numberOfLetters.apply(“word”);
