Get ready to program in a whole new way. Functional Programming in Java
will help you quickly get on top of the new, essential Java 8 language features
and the functional style that will change and improve your code. This short, targeted
book will help you make the paradigm shift from the old imperative way to a less
error-prone, more elegant, and concise coding style that's also a breeze to parallelize.
You'll explore the syntax and semantics of lambda expressions, method and constructor
references, and functional interfaces. You'll design and write applications better
using the new standards in Java 8 and the JDK.
