Lambda Expressions in Java 8

ABSTRACT
 
 
Java 8 will introdude elements of functional programming in to the Java programming language - the so-called "lambda expressions" (formerly known as "closures").  The language extension will include SAM (Single Abstract Method) type conversion, lambda expressions, extension methods, method references und local variable capture. The tutorial will explain the new language features along with their purpose and their impact on the JDK. Especially the collections framework (package java.util) will undergo a major overhaul.
