The March/April issue of Java Magazine jam-packed with information to get you started with Java SE 8, a revolutionary release of the world’s #1 development platform.

The biggest change in Java SE 8 - what some have called the most significant upgrade to the Java programming language ever - is lambda expressions, or closures. “Lambda expressions are anonymous methods that provide developers with a simple and compact means for representing behavior as data,” explains Brian Goetz, Java language architect at Oracle. “In a few years, developers will wonder how they ever lived without [them].”

In “Java 8: Explore the Possibilities,” we give you an overview of lambdas, the Nashorn JavaScript engine, Compact Profiles, the new date and time API, the role of community, and more. We also explore the new features that make Java ME 8 a comprehensive platform for connected devices and show you how to get started with embedded development. There are also articles on processing data with Java SE 8 Streams and the benefits of type annotations. Get started with Java 8 today with this issue of Java Magazine.
