Java 8: Lambdas and Collection Handling

June 16, 2015 / category: JVM / 0 comments

Since I like to stay up-to-date with at least the most important programming languages, libraries and frameworks, I finally decided to take a good look at lambdas introduced in Java 8.

How to make the code more concise and readable? How do the closures work? How are the lambda types being described in method signatures? What had to be sacrificied in order to maintain binary compatibility? How the collection operations can be parallelized? Is it always beneficial?

If you want to get to know the answers, take a look at the slides included.
