Good luck with the book.

There seem to be a lot of new features in Java 8.

Are these all covered in depth in the book with working code examples?

Is there a project / case study showing application usage of the new features?

Thanks Kevin

Hi Kevin,

We cover all main features in depth in our book with many working examples and quizzes.

As for a project, here's a fun one. Chapter 10 discusses how to design a develop a “best price finder” application that contacts multiple online shops to find the lowest price for a given product or service.

This project combines lambda expressions, streams and Completable futures which are all new features in Java 8!

To get you started we made a video to give you a taster about lambda expressions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rd-sqHjmfB0
