This Java New Features training course provides hands-on experience with lambda expressions introduced in Java as well as many other changes to the language and libraries. Attendees will get a full appreciation of functional-style programming and the new idioms made possible by lambda expressions that make their code easier to read and understand. The course then explores the Streams API, which lets you write powerful code that processes a collection of data in a declarative way. Attendees will get a full appreciation of what streams are and how they can use them in their programs to process collections of data concisely and efficiently.
Anyone developing Java applications who has core Java SE skills and wishes to capitalize on the addition of lambda expressions and streams library in Java to create less error-prone and simpler concurrent programs.
