Overview

Eagerly anticipated by millions of programmers, Java SE 8 is the most important Java update in many years. The addition of lambda expressions (closures) and streams represents the biggest change to Java programming since the introduction of generics and annotations.

 

Now, with Java SE 8 for the Really Impatient , internationally renowned Java author Cay S. Horstmann concisely introduces Java 8’s most valuable new features (plus a few Java 7 innovations that haven’t gotten the attention they deserve). If you’re an experienced Java programmer, Horstmann’s practical insights and sample code will help you quickly take advantage of these and other Java language and platform improvements. This indispensable guide includes

• Coverage of using lambda expressions (closures) to write computation “snippets” that can be passed to utility functions • The brand-new streams API that makes Java collections far more flexible and efficient • Major updates to concurrent programming that make use of lambda expressions (filter/map/reduce) and that provide dramatic performance improvements for shared counters and hash tables • A full chapter with advice on how you can put lambda expressions to work in your own programs • Coverage of the long-awaited introduction of a well-designed date/time/calendar library (JSR 310) • A concise introduction to JavaFX, which is positioned to replace Swing GUIs, and to the Nashorn Javascript engine • A thorough discussion of many small library changes that make Java programming more productive and enjoyable

This is the first title to cover all of these highly anticipated improvements and is invaluable for anyone who wants to write tomorrow’s most robust, efficient, and secure Java code.

Her brown hair is in a pixie-cut, mostly for convience reasons. Her eyes are a sharp green. She is fairly tall, and very fit. She doesn't put a lot of effort into looking nice, but still manages to pull it off. Tat with the words, "Shoot first." on her shoulder. * Personality: Again, she is a. Total. Bada<.>ss. She is snarky and full of "attitude." Quite intelligent. Extremely observant, ecspecially to small detail. Anyway, she's tough, but loyal, though she willl never just blindly follow anyone. * Specialties: She can easily change appearance and even can act enough to get into places where others can't. She is also able to decieve crooks with her beauty and acting skills. * Other: You can make it up, just remember: She. Is. A. Total. Bada<.>ss. Bye.

My character's name is Rachel A. Dinera. She is 29 years old and is 5 foot 6. She is slim with wavy blonde hair that sways down to her hips. She is quite serious and not afraid to cause pain. She will not get distracted in her work. She is very determined and she hates to laugh or smile. She will do it... but it would take a miracle. She wears black sunglasses and black clothes often and dislikes sparkles,, dresses, skirts, shorts, bright colors, colors besides black, onions, garlic, or in other words... she hates looking nice(But she still is pretty) and she is really picky... REALLY picky. Very independant. She doesnt do make up. she doesnt have grey hairs. Well... anything you want to add go ahead... and if you dont like some part... change it! I wont care. Thank you and please choose Rachel!
