Take a tour of the new features in Java SE 8, the platform designed to support faster and easier Java development. Learn about Project Lambda, a new syntax to support lambda expressions in Java code; the new Stream API for processing collections and managing parallel processing; the DateTime API for representing, managing and calculating date and time values; and Nashorn, a new engine to better support the use of JavaScript code with the Java Virtual Machine. Author David Gassner also covers some lesser-known features such as new methods for joining strings into lists.

Topics include:
  • Installing Java SE 8
  • Working with lambda expressions and method references
  • Traversing collections with streams
  • Calculating timespans with the new DateTime API
  • Running JavaScript from Java with Nashorn


- [Voiceover] My name is David Gassner and this is Java SE 8 new features. This course is designed for developers who are already familiar with Java programming and want to learn what's available in this new release. I'll start by showing you how to install the newest version of the Java Developer's Kit, or JDK and how to add Java 8 support to Eclipse. Then, I'll take you on a tour of the most important new features starting with Project Lambda. I'll describe how to use the new Stream API and use parallel processing on multi core systems and the new date time API that let's you streamline your code and make it more intuitive and I'll describe some lesser known new features such as a new class for joining strings into lists.

The features I'll describe in this course let you streamline your code, make it more maintainable and, in come cases, even make it run faster.
