In Java 8 how can I filter a collection using the Stream API by checking the distinctness of a property of each object?
For example I have a list of Person object and I want to remove people with the same name,
Will use the default equality check for a Person object, so I need something like,
persons.stream().distinct(p -> p.getName());
Unfortunately, the distinct() method has no such overload. Without modifying the equality check inside the Person class is it possible to do this succinctly?
