Quotes

"The convergence of Java SE 8 and Java ME 8 is intended to provide a consistent development environment that improves developer productivity and application performance, along with the ability to 'right-size' the platform for deployment across an even wider range of use cases" she said
...for businesses and developers," said Ian Drew, chief marketing officer and executive vice president of business development at ARM, in a statement. "The Oracle JDK 8 release showcases our collaboration that will drive standards and an open ecosystem enabling developers to create applications from smart IoT devices to servers."
..."The primary use case for in-memory caching is to speed up applications that get bogged down by slower database bottlenecks," Gualtieri said. "A hot trend among the database vendors, such as SAP Hana and Microsoft SQL Server 14, is in-memory capabilities that dramatically speed up database access. These databases aren't just using more memory for old-school indexes of record caching. They have added in-memory database engines that take advantage of the hardware characteristics of RAM. Also, distributed NoSQL databases, such as MongoDB, can perform very well and have the same distributed architecture as Hazelcast and Terracotta."
...Java 8 comes with a number of essential capabilities relevant to the current state of the world, the most crucial being project Lamda. "The big thing in Java 8 is of course project Lamda, which enables developers to more effectively use concurrency and the callback style of programming popular in cloud development" Mike Piech, Red Hat's general manager of middleware was quoted by Datamation as saying
