Nashorn and Lambda, What the Hey!

Yesterday, Brian Goetz (Lambda architect) suggested that I produce an example of Lambda being used from Nashorn.  Since, I've been heads down in Nashorn, I really haven't played with Lambda that much.  After looking at some examples from Stuart Marks,  I figured, what the hey, it doesn't look that hard.  Details of the Lambda APIs are available at JDK 8 b92 API .

Many constructs are familiar to JavaScript developers.  The main things to note;
  • where you can use a Lambda you can use a JavaScript function
  • JavaScript arrays need to be converted to Java collections
  • JavaScript syntax requires the '.' end a phrase, not start one (forces continuation)
Other than that, the JavaScript source and Java source looks very much the same.
