Hi Pierre-Yves,
Another question on your book:-

I see Streams and Lambdas go hand in hand well in Java 8. Does your book contain examples that use Streams and Lambdas?

Thanks,
Raghu

Hi Raghu,

Lambdas are used everywhere in the book. Java 8 streams are not used. Instead, there is a chapter about developing our own (more functional) streams. This includes automatic parallelization. Of course it involves using lambdas. All that you will learn in this chapter will be useful if you want to use Java 8 streams. Of course, you will have to be aware of the differences. This is why there will be a chapter about differences between Java 8 standard structures and the truly functional ones we will have developed.
