Yes, this should work:

    CompletableFuture<Integer> runNonblocking()
        return task1(1)
            .thenCompose( i1 -> task2(i1).thenCombine(task3(i1),
(i2,i3)->i2+i3) )
            .thenCompose( i4 -> task4(i4) );

PS, shameless plug, I'm working on an Async API too, in which the
example can be coded as

        Async<Integer> runNonblocking()
            return task1(1)
                .then( i1 -> Async.invoke(this::plus, task2(i1), task3(i1)) )
                .then( i4 -> task4(i4) );
