How to create an RxJava 2 Observable from a Java List

As a brief note, here’s an example that shows how to create an RxJava 2 Observable from a Java List:

import io.reactivex.Observable;
import java.util.*;

 * Demonstrates how to create an Observable from a List.
 * Prints:
 *    Hello
 *    world
 * See
 * for more information.
public class HelloWorld3UsingList {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        List<String> strings = new ArrayList<String>(
            Arrays.asList("Hello", "world")

        Observable<String> observable = Observable.fromIterable(strings);
        observable.subscribe(s -> System.out.println(s));



I’ve written about RxJava before so I won’t add any more details than that, but for more RxJava examples you can search this site, or see the Github URL shown in the comments for more information.
