JavaFX 8 DatePicker with Lambdas in NetBeans IDE 7.4

The JavaFX 8 API, which is bundled with JDK 8, contains a new UI control known as the DatePicker. The video below by Jim Weaver demonstrates how to use NetBeans IDE 7.4 Beta to create a JavaFX application from scratch that contains a DatePicker. It also touches on using Java lambda expressions to simplify event handling. In addition, the new date/time API is discussed, and the JFXtras CalendarPicker is demonstrated.

The blog post associated with this video is located in Jim Weaver's Rich-Client Java Blog at the following URL:

I saw the video. More than the date picker, the lambda hint and conversion in NB was fantastic! NB rocks!!
And, it has made it very simple for a Java developer to learn lambda!
