Java Closures and Lambda by Robert Fischer

By Robert Fischer

Java Closures and Lambda introduces you to major new adjustments to the Java language popping out of what's termed undertaking Lambda. those new adjustments make their debut in Java eight, and their spotlight is the long-awaited aid for lambda expressions within the Java language. You'll learn how to write lambda expressions and use them to create practical interfaces and default tools for evolving APIs, between many different makes use of. The adjustments in Java eight are major. Syntax and utilization of the language are replaced significantly with the advent of closures and lambda expressions. This e-book takes you thru those very important adjustments from creation to mastery. via a suite of transparent examples, you'll learn how to refactor present code to use the recent language beneficial properties. You'll study what these good points can do for you, and once they are top utilized. You'll discover ways to layout and write new code having those very important new beneficial properties in brain from the very starting. basically explains the wonderful merits as a result of venture Lambda Explains the syntax and IDE aid for the hot good points exhibits the best way to streamline your code by means of bringing the various advantages of useful programming to the Java language Illustrates parallelism in closures via flow and Spliterator items Explains API evolution through including ways to present interfaces with no breaking present interface implementations, a strategy addressing power a number of inheritance concerns What you'll examine Encapsulate key bits of good judgment into nameless features with out the necessity for nameless periods outline closures for use as turbines of comparability features outline map, filter out, and decrease services which are priceless in operating with lists and different collections seize and deal with exceptions regarding lambdas and closures, together with the passing of exception-type parameters count on and supply for concurrency in order that your code effectively scales throughout a number of CPU

Example text

Some Java developers still don’t know about the Iterable interface, which was introduced in Java 5. It is the base class underlying all the Java SDK classes that can provide an Iterator, and it is the class that enabled the enhanced for loop introduced in Java 5. Since the new forEach method is on this widely implemented interface, all those implementing classes now have a forEach method, as well. Semantically, the forEach method is the same thing as a for loop: it takes a Consumer and executes it for each element in the loop.

10 This method is also available under the UnaryOperator type, so that you can keep using that Function subclass and save yourself some typing. andThen These two default methods provide the ability to take on functionality before and after a given function. The methods allow you to create a pipeline effect in a rather fluent API, and are especially useful for converting the types of a function to what you want them to be; you can prepend or append conversion functions inline. If you want to change the result type, use andThen.

The solution is to never accept null and to aggressively check for it, exploding loudly as soon as it occurs. Some developers are concerned that this is adding overhead to their code and hindering performance, but that concern is the height of premature optimizations. On the one hand, not guarding against null can lead your code to break badly, and so it is important to ensure correctness: I can give you the wrong answer infinitely fast. At the same time, adding in these guards will remove a lot of null from your code, and so those null checks will become cold branches and Java’s highly optimized runtime will make them effectively costless.
