About Java 8

Java 8 was released on 18 March 2014, and included some features that were planned for Java 7 but later deferred.Work on features was organized in terms of JDK Enhancement Proposals (JEPs).

JSR 335, JEP 126: Language-level support for lambda expressions (officially, lambda expressions; unofficially, closures) under Project Lambda and default methods (virtual extension methods) which make multiple inheritance possible in Java. There was an ongoing debate in the Java community on whether to add support for lambda expressions. Sun later declared that lambda expressions would be included in Java and asked for community input to refine the feature.

 Supporting lambda expressions also allows the performance of functional-style operations on streams of elements, such as MapReduce-inspired transformations on collections. Default methods allow an author of API to add new methods to an interface without breaking the old code using it. It also provides a way to use multiple inheritance, multiple inheritance of implementation more precisely.
