Java 8: It’s a Whole New Java

  • Robert Fischer
Chapter

Abstract

This book is about lambdas (closures) in Java 8. More than that, though, it’s about the new language that Java has become. The revolution was not televised, and it was met with little fanfare, but it has happened. It is possible for you to continue to write the same old Java code in our new Java 8 world, but unless you get onboard with the revolution, you will increasingly discover code that is called “Java,” but which has language, syntax, and customs that are foreign to you.
