This webinar will discuss some of the major changes in the Java 8 platform, one of the most significant updates to Java in some time. Besides a long sought-after API for working better with Date and Time, one of the most significant changes in Java 8 are ‘Lambda Expressions’. These allow you to treat a function implementation like an object and have far-reaching impacts on what you can do with Java. New approaches to filtering, sorting and performing calculations with Collections are now possible with Lambda Expressions. You can also use Lambda Expressions in many places where previously you needed an extraneous anonymous class so this will simply code.
