Oakamoor, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/17/2014 -- P8tech is pleased to announce the publication of the new book and ebook: Java 8 New Features: A Practical Heads-Up Guide.

The latest version of Java offers numerous improvements and new features to better utilize Java. Streams supports a fluent approach to problem solving and enables developers to take advantage of concurrency with minimal effort, whilst Lambda Expressions offer new ways of expressing a solution that brings efficiency and succinct programming. In this concise and easy-to-read color book, acclaimed author Richard Reese explains how streams, lambda expressions and other Java 8 features can be applied in the real world.

Aimed at Java developers, Java 8 New Features is a concise book filled with code examples and best practice, within which readers will learn how interface enhancements - such as default methods - affect new additions to Java 8 and their impact on multiple inheritance between interfaces. In turn, they will use lambda expressions to simplify solutions to development problems and discover how the new Stream interface supports query type problems. Furthermore, readers will explore the new support for concurrent processing including that supported by Streams and find out why the new date and time enhancements make working with time so much easier than it used to be. Also includes information on the Nashorn JavaScript Engine, File IO Enhancements, and Project Jigsaw.
