Java 8 - Why Java8 doesn't provide the putIfPresent() function for Map

Because we already have the method replace that does the same thing


Map<String,String> strMap = new HashMap<String,String>();
strMap.put("Key2", "Value2");
strMap.replace("Key3", "Value3");

* Replace method doesn't throw the exception even if the element with specified Key is not already present in the Map and hence exactly replicate the behavior put If Present.
