I worked mostly on version 6. I am not aware of the new features introduced in Java 7 and Java 8. I have read some functional programming features in Java 8. What is functional programming. How it is different from Object Oriented.
So which book should i read first to get the details of features in Java 8/functional programming and implementation of the same.

See our Functional Programming forum for questions about functional programming.

Java 8 features that are related to functional programming are lambda expressions and method references. These are covered in Kishori's "Beginning Java 8 Language Features"
