What's New In Java 8

Java 8 is a giant step forward for the Java language. In Project Lambda, Java gets a new closure syntax (lambda expressions), method-references, and default and static methods on interfaces. It manages to add many of the features of functional languages without losing the clarity and simplicity Java developers have come to expect. In addition, many of the existing Java core library classes have been enhanced with the new Streams API.

This book will help you understand Java 8, including: Project Lambda, the new Date-Time API, Streams, default methods, the Nashorn Javascript engine, and more.
