Hi,

For an existing Java programmer, which book has the most useful information about Java 8 and the changes that are likely to affect your day to day work?

One of your previous answers mentioned the new Date/Time functions are covered in the Fundamentals book and Lambda Expressions are covered in
the Features book. Pretty much everybody uses Data Time functions at some point but the new features might improve the way we work/code .

Thanks,
Paul

Hello Paul,

I would suggest the second book "Beginning Java 8 Language Features (ISBN 978-1430266587)". It contains chapters on Java 8 such as Lambda Expressions and the Streams API that will benefit you most.

Thank you Kishori.
Good luck with the books.
