"A great and concise guide to what’s new in Java8, with plenty of examples to get you going in a hurry."
Jason Lee, Oracle
Java 8 in Action is a clearly written guide to the features of Java 8. It begins with a practical introduction to lambdas, using real-world Java code. Next, it covers the new Streams API and shows how you can use it to make collection-based code radically easier to understand and maintain. It also explains other major Java 8 features including default methods, Optional, CompletableFuture, and the new Date and Time API.
With Java 8's functional features you can now write more concise code in less time, and also automatically benefit from multicore architectures. It's time to dig in!
This book/course is made for programmers familiar with Java and basic OO programming.
- How to use Java 8's powerful features
- Writing effective multicore-ready applications
- Refactoring, testing, and debugging
- Adopting functional-style programming
- Quizzes and quick-check questions
