Welcome to the series of Learn Java 8 Tutorials. With many valuable examples, in this series of tutorials, we will understand the fundamental differences between traditional Java and Java 8.
Java 8 was Java’s most significant release since its inception, which brought many great changes to the Java Platform. The capabilities of lambda expressions and streams were long-awaited in Java. They also modified the Collections Framework components and Date and Time API.
Interfaces are the backbone of the Java Collections Framework, so Java could never change any of the Collection framework APIs. But in this release, Java added the concept of default methods in interfaces to solve the long-pending issue. The first time since the inception, we saw new methods in the ArrayList and Maps, etc.
