JDK Version history - Best Features

In this post I'll not go deep into each feature but keep it as a chit-sheet for interview preparation on different JDK best features in different versions. 

JDK 7 - new and best features
1. Diamond operator / Type interface >>
2. String is now allowed in Switch
3.Automatic resource management - try-with-resources statement
4.Underscore in Numeric literals _
5. Improved exception handling - Catching Multiple Exception Type in Single Catch Block
6. New file system API (NIO 2.0)

JDK 8 - new and best features
1. Lambda Expressions, a new language feature, has been introduced in this release. They enable you to treat functionality as a method argument, or code as data. Lambda expressions let you express instances of single-method interfaces (referred to as functional interfaces) more compactly.
2.Collections :  Classes in the new java.util.stream package provide a Stream API to support functional-style operations on streams of elements.

Who ever writes Inappropriate/Vulgar comments to context, generally want to be anonymous …So I hope U r not the one like that?
For lazy logs u can at least use Name/URL option which don’t even require any sign-in, good thing is that it can accept your lovely nick name also and URL is not mandatory too.
Thanks for your patience
