This method will find all the items in the groovy collection that matches the IDENTITY closure.


This method iterates through a collection and transforms each entry element to a new element using IDENTITY closure as a transformer. It returns a new collection of elements copied from the original collection.

Difference between finalAll() and collect() methods

findAll() collect()
findAll() will return the collection or subset of collection that satisfy the Identity closure or a condition collect() will return a new collection or sub set of collection.
findAll() will not modify the entry elements of the collection collect() will modify the elements by Identity closure.
findAll() will return the elements that matches the condition or Identity closure. collect() will return all the elements of the collection based on the transformation specified by the closure.

def list = [1,2,3,4,5];    

println list.findAll{it==3} // [3]
println list.findAll{it>3} // [4, 5]
println list.findAll{it*2} // [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

println list.collect{it%2==0} // [false, true, false, true, false]
println list.collect{it==2} // [false, true, false, false, false]
println list.collect{it*2} // [2, 4, 6, 8, 10]
