A new slide deck for a screencast I am working on, planning to publish it tomorrow, on how to effectively migrate to JDK 8. I.e., you simply must have tools to do so, otherwise it's a nightmare.
All the slides with "Demo" on them are the points where I will switch into NetBeans IDE 8 and do a small demo.
Probably a lot of the above will change quite a bit.

On a related note, take a look at this brilliant new article by Brett Ryan on migrating with NetBeans 8 to JDK 8:http://drunkendev.blogspot.nl/2014/01/migrating-to-jdk-8-with-netbeans.html
