Summary Pro Java 8 Programming covers the core Java development kit. It takes advantage of the finer points of the core standard edition (SE) and development kit version 8. You'll discover the particulars of working with the Java language and APIs to develop applications in many different contexts. You will also delve into more advanced topics like lambda expressions, closures, new i/o (NIO. 2), enums, generics, XML, metadata and the Swing APIs for GUI design and development. By the end of the book, you'll be fully prepared to take advantage of Java's ease of development, and able to create powerful, sophisticated Java applications.
