Java EE 8 Community Survey - Part 2!

By Guest BloggerDavid Delabassee 

The second part of the Java EE 8 Community Survey is now open!

During the last 5 weeks, we have been positively surprised by the community responses on the first part of the survey. We have received a lot of valuable feedback! That means we have *a lot of data* to process, a really nice problem to face! Thanks to all who participated in Part 1! If you haven't, there still time to answer Part 1.

Part 2 of the survey is focusing on topics such as Cloud, Security, Logging, Deployment, Testability, etc. We are again soliciting your feedback on those different topics.

In a few weeks from now, once the results of the 2 parts have been distilled and summarized, we will share those results with the community. The next step would then be to ask you to help us prioritize those features.

Thanks in advance for helping us to set the initial directions of Java EE 8 by participating in Part 2 of the Community Survey.

NightHacking Online: Lambdas Hacking with Brian Goetz

NightHacking is kicking off the new year with Brian Goetz, Java Language Architect at Oracle, providing an in-depth look at Lambdas. Watch the live stream and join the three-hour hacking session. There will be a Google Hangout setup for groups participating remotely. Find a  NightHacking Meetup in your city or create your own. While you can hack in a group of any size, 5-15 is the ideal range. NightHacking will supply the Git repo and examples, you supply the coffee or beer!

NightHacking will send out the hacking materials shortly before the broadcast. Any recent JDK 8 build will work, the build of record will be b121. Follow @­_nighthacking for the latest updates.

Interested in trying out the new lambda feature in Java 8? If so, this “higher-order lab” is for you. Participants will use a recent JDK 8 development build and a recent NetBeans build that support the lambda feature and will take part in exercises intended to teach them about the new lambda feature of the Java programming language and the new Streams Library API. The exercises start off very simply, so that beginners can learn the fundamentals. Additional exercises covering grouping and parallel reduction aim to challenge more-advanced participants. Participants need not have any prior knowledge of Java’s lambda feature.
