Epilogue

Using a functional programming style often results in simpler and more elegant solutions to problems. We covered a number of different functional programming features available in Java 8. Lambda expressions provide the foundation for better ways of expressing application logic. Streams and the fluent style of method invocation make a program more readable and maintainable. Many of the other Java 8 additions complement and support functional programming in Java. It is hoped that you will apply this style to your future programming efforts.
