Java SE8 for the Really Impatient: A Short Course on the Basics (Java Series)

By Cay S. Horstmann

Eagerly expected by means of hundreds of thousands of programmers, Java SE eight is crucial Java replace in lots of years. The addition of lambda expressions (closures) and streams represents the most important switch to Java programming because the advent of generics and annotations.


Now, with Java SE eight for the quite Impatient , the world over well known Java writer Cay S. Horstmann concisely introduces Java 8’s most precious new gains (plus a couple of Java 7 thoughts that haven’t gotten the eye they deserve). If you’re an skilled Java programmer, Horstmann’s useful insights and pattern code may help you quick make the most of those and different Java language and platform advancements. This imperative advisor includes

  • Coverage of utilizing lambda expressions (closures) to put in writing computation “snippets” that may be handed to application functions
  • The brand-new streams API that makes Java collections way more versatile and efficient
  • Major updates to concurrent programming that utilize lambda expressions (filter/map/reduce) and that supply dramatic functionality advancements for shared counters and hash tables
  • A complete bankruptcy with suggestion on how one can positioned lambda expressions to paintings on your personal programs
