@AakashM this is an essential question and I want more experts to come up with more interesting answers, that's all.

It seems the OP doesn't exactly want to do advanced analytics, which are what the packages you mention are used for.

comment When to use functional programming approach and when not? (in Java)
Not really answering your question, but I feel compelled to give a link where John Carmack discuss the pro's and con's of using functional programming with an imperative language (in his case C++ but it translates fine into Java): altdevblogaday.com/2012/04/26/functional-programming-in-c

comment Static functions vs classes
Actually I am a big fan of static methods myself, but in my company I noticed a senior dev using non static methods, so this got me thinking. Basically I would to ListBigDecimalUtils.computeAverage(x) while he would do new AverageListBigDecimal().calculate(x). I don't see the benefit of his approach.

comment Static functions vs classes
"If your utility class has a reason to occasionally vary its behaviour": yeah but I am in a java shop and you cannot change a static method by extending the class.
