Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter you will learn about the new language feature introduced in Java 8 called lambda expressions, or lambdas, and I will also discuss JavaFX properties and binding APIs. The goal of this chapter is to demonstrate how lambdas and properties will be used in the context of JavaFX GUI applications. Having said this, I will mainly concentrate on the common features that will be used in most of the examples in this book, and will not detail every lambda and properties feature.
