It’s been a while since JDK 8 was released, bringing plenty of new features to the Java language; among them the most expected feature was ,with no room for doubt, the introduction of Lambda expressions.
The release of Lambdas supposed one of the biggest quality jumps in the Java language in its history; mainly due to the fact that it opened a wide new range of possibilities to the language. Without them it’d be impossible to have the more flexible, expressive and simpler language that we can enjoy nowadays.
OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.
In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

Functional interface is an interface that consists of one abstract method. These interface can show only one functionality. Beyond Java 8, _lambda expressions _can be used to represent the instance of a functional interface. Functional Interfaces can contain any number of default methods. Consumer, Predicate, Function, Unary Operator, Binary Operator are some of the examples of predefined functional interfaces.
Points to remember which are allowed and which are not allowed in a functional interface:
From functional interface if we remove @FunctionalInterface annotation, it must be valid. We use an annotation so that only single abstract method can be present. In functional interface we can provide implementations as the default methods inside interface.

In this blog we will understand what is the lambda expression and why we need lambda expression and how we use lambda and about the functional interface.

According to some surveys, such as JetBrains’s great survey, Java 8 is currently the most used version of Java, despite being a 2014 release.
What you are reading is one in a series of articles titled ‘Going beyond Java 8,’ inspired by the contents of my book, Java for Aliens. These articles will guide you step-by-step through the most important features introduced to the language, starting from version 9. The aim is to make you aware of how important it is to move forward from Java 8, explaining the enormous advantages that the latest versions of the language offer.
In this article, we will talk about the most important new feature introduced with Java 10. Officially called local variable type inference, this feature is better known as the **introduction of the word **
var. Despite the complicated name, it is actually quite a simple feature to use. However, some observations need to be made before we can see the impact that the introduction of the word
var has on other pre-existing characteristics.

In this blog we will understand basics of JAVA Collections framework.
The Collection in Java is a framework that provides an architecture to store and manipulate the group of objects.
Collections are like containers that group multiple items in a single unit. For example, a jar of chocolates, a list of names, etc. Collections are used in every programming language and when Java arrived, it also came with few. Let’s see how does it help us:
