Java 8 lambdas

In the better-late-than-never department, we have lambdas (closures) coming to Java 8. Personally, I’m very happy using Clojure, but it’s nice to know that the Java world is still making progress, albeit very slowly…

Scheduled for release in 2013, Java 8 will include language support for lambda functions. Although the specification is still in flux, lambdas are already implemented in JDK 8 binaries.
