This is a webpage devoted to lambda expressions in Java (a new language feature) and streams (new abstractions in the JDK's collection framework) - both were added to Java on March 18, 2014 with release 8. If you want to provide feedback or have any questions regarding lambda expressions in Java feel free to send me EMAIL or use the LAMBDA QUESTION form.
The Lambda Tutorial is available in PDF format (330KB) and in EPUB format (410KB) .
The Lambda Reference (note: it is an incomplete draft version) is available in PDF format (1200KB) .


Keep in mind that part of the Lambda/Streams Tutorial & References is still in draft version.

Documentation & Specification

Lambda Expressions - Reference
This tutorial aims to provide a first glance at the language features that were added to the Java programming language in release 8 of Java, namely lambda expression, method reference, and default methods. Comprehensive coverage of the details can be found in the "Lambda Reference".

Streams - Tutorial & Reference

Equally interesting is the context for which these features were designed, namely the streams and bulk operations in JDK 8.  An overview is given in the "Stream Tutorial", further details in the "Stream Reference".
