@GwtCompatible public interface Predicate<T>
Predicates class provides common predicates and related utilities.
See the Guava User Guide article on

This interface is now a legacy type. Use
java.util.function.Predicate (or the
appropriate primitive specialization such as
IntPredicate) instead whenever possible.
Otherwise, at least reduce explicit dependencies on this type by using lambda expressions
or method references instead of classes, leaving your code easier to migrate in the future.
To use a reference of this type (say, named
guavaPredicate) in a context where
java.util.function.Predicate is expected, use the method reference
guavaPredicate::apply. For the other direction, use
javaUtilPredicate::test. A future
version of this interface will be made to extend
that conversion will be necessary in only one direction. At that time, this interface will be
