MAKE AN ENQUIRY Download Course Outline

Java 8 training provides in-depth knowledge to the delegates about the functional interfaces, streams, lambda expressions and new Java 8 API. Java is a most popular programming language, and it is also a platform for developing the web enterprise, desktop and mobile applications. Throughout the training, the delegates will able to understand all the new features of Java 8 and also understand the usage of these features simply and intuitively. The delegates will understand how to use optional and default methods while writing java 8 code.

Java 8 is the most awaited release of Java. With the help of the Java 8 training, the delegates will be able to understand about the Lambda Expressions, Method References and Functional Interfaces. The training provides a complete knowledge to the delegates about the Default Methods, New Date/Time API, Optional Class and the Streams concepts. The training introduces the delegates with the most powerful feature added in Java 8:- Lambdas and how the delegates can be used to make their code brief, declarative and elegant.

The delegates will get to know about the Streams introduced in Java 8 as well as their difference from Collections in Java. The delegates also learn about the advanced operations on Streams such as partitioning, grouping and parallel streams. The course also provides knowledge about the Java 8, which introduced a feature of Default methods in interfaces. The delegates will also go through some functional programming aspects and their blending with existing Java codes.


For attending this training, the delegates should have basic knowledge about working of Core Java concepts, and they also have a basic understanding of few design patterns.
