Learn Lambdas, Streams , new Date APIs, Optionals and Parallel programming in Java 8 by coding it.

Learn the new Java 8 Features by coding it. This is a pure coding course and you will get a complete understanding of all the Java 8 features by coding it.

Why Should I take this course ?

  • This course will help the Java developers to build their knowledge on the new Java 8 features.

  • All the new features such as Lambdas, Streams , Optionals, Functional Interfaces and Parallel Programming will be explained via code.

  • This course will give you the confidence on implementing new Java 8 features in real Java projects.

  • By the end of this course you will have a complete understanding of new Java 8 functional features.

Course Overview :

  • Implement the Runnable interface using Lambdas.

  • Implement the Comparator interface using Lambdas.

Section 5: Lambdas and Functional Interfaces

  • This section covers the new Functional Interfaces that got introduced as part of Java 8.

    • Consumer Functional Interface

    • Predicate Functional Interface

    • Function Functional Interface

    • Supplier Functional Interface.

Section 6 : Constructor and Method References

  • This section covers the new Method Reference and the Constructor Reference.

    • How Method Reference simplifies the code.

    • How to use Method reference along with Lambdas.

    • How to use Constructor Reference to create new objects.

Section 7 : Lambdas and Local variables ( Effectively Final )

  • This section covers the local variable and how it should used in Lambdas.

  • Definition of Effectively Final scope of a variable.

Section 8 : Streams API

  • This section covers the Streams API which is one of the important feature that got introduced as part of Java8.

  • How the Stream API Works Internally ?

  • How Collections are different from Streams ?

  • How to debug a Stream ?

Section 9 : Streams API Operations

  • This section covers different Streams API operations that can be used in Streams to achieve an objective.

  • Streams Operations such as :

    • map()

    • flatMap()

    • distinct()

    • count()

    • filter()

    • reducer()

    • Map, Filter and Reduce pattern.

    • max()

    • min()

    • limit()

    • skip()

    • allMatch(), anyMatch() and noneMatch()

    • findAny() and findFirst()

  • Explanation of Stream operations that are Short Circuit operations.

Section 10 : Streams API - Factory Methods

  • This section covers different Streams API factory method that can be used to create Streams.

Section 11: Numeric Streams

  • This section covers the Introduction to Numeric Streams which can be used to perform some numeric related operations.

Section 12: Terminal Operations Streams

  • This section covers different way to collect the data from the Streams Pipeline.

  • Terminal Operations such as :

    • joining()

    • counting()

    • mapping()

    • max(), min()

    • sum()

    • average()

    • groupingBy()

    • partitioningBy()

Section 12: Streams API - Parallel Processing

  • How Parallel Programming makes use of the processors in your machine to perform concurrency operations? 

  • How Parallel Programming works internally ?

  • How to check the performance between the sequential and parallel programming ?

  • Scenarios when not to use parallel programming.

Section 12: Optional

  • This section covers What is Optional and the benefits of Optional.

  • How Optional can help you avoid Null Pointer exception.

  • Exploring the different operations that are part of Optional such as :

    • empty()

    • ofNullable()

    • of()

    • orElse()

    • orElseGet()

    • orElseThrow()

    • isPresent()

    • ifPresent()

    • map()

    • flatMap()

    • filter()
