Mastering Lambdas: Java Programming in a Multicore World describes how the lambda-related features of Java SE 8 will enable Java to meet the challenges of next-generation parallel hardware architectures. The book explains how to write lambdas, and how to use them in streams and in collection processing, providing code examples throughout. You'll learn how to use lambda expressions to take full advantage of performance improvements provided by today's multicore hardware. This Oracle Press book covers:
This is the third edition of the popular computer science textbook Java Methods. The book offers a thorough introduction to the concepts and practices of object-oriented programming in Java. It also introduces the most common data structures and related algorithms and their implementations in the Java collections framework.
Chapters 1-14 follow the syllabus of the AP Computer Science course. They will prepare you well for the AP CS exam. Chapters 15-18 on file input and output, graphics, graphical user interfaces, and events handling in Java will give you a better sense of real-world Java programming; this material also makes case studies, labs, and exercises more fun. Chapters 19-26 deal with more advanced data structures and algorithms. Chapter 27, Design Patterns, discusses more intricate aspects of object-oriented design and serves as an introduction to design patterns, and Chapter 28, Computing in Context, addresses the issues of creative, responsible, and ethical computer use.
The book follows four main threads: Java syntax and style, OOP concepts and techniques, algorithms, and Java libraries. As in the software engineering profession itself, these threads are interwoven into an inseparable braid.
Working through this book will not make you a Java expert right away, but it will bring you to the level of an entry-level Java programmer with a better than average understanding of the fundamental concepts.
Functional Programming in Java teaches Java developers how to incorporate the most powerful benefits of functional programming into new and existing Java code. You'll learn to think functionally about coding tasks in Java and use FP to make your applications easier to understand, optimize, maintain, and scale.
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
About the Technology
Here's a bold statement: learn functional programming and you'll be a better Java developer. Fortunately, you don't have to master every aspect of FP to get a big payoff. If you take in a few core principles, you'll see an immediate boost in the scalability, readability, and maintainability of your code. And did we mention that you'll have fewer bugs? Let's get started!
About the Book
Functional Programming in Java teaches you how to incorporate the powerful benefits of functional programming into new and existing Java code. This book uses easy-to-grasp examples, exercises, and illustrations to teach core FP principles such as referential transparency, immutability, persistence, and laziness. Along the way, you'll discover which of the new functionally inspired features of Java 8 will help you most.
About the Reader
Written for Java developers with no previous FP experience.
