Java 8 Base64

Java 8 Base64 provides a standard way to do Base64 encoding and decoding.
There are three types of Base64 encoding:
Basic: Encoder produces a set of characters within A-Za-z0-9+/. Decoder rejects any character NOT mapped to A-Za-z0-9+/.
URL: Encoder produces a URL or safe filename which is set of characters within A-Za-z0-9+_.
MIME: Output is mapped to MIME friendly format.

Java 8 CompletableFutures

Java 8 multithreading programming has an important feature named CompletableFuture.
In previous post about Java Future, we have the concept of a Future object, which can help us make something done while waiting for other things. However, although we can inspect Future objects to see if they’re done, what if we wanna execute some code whenever its ready? We still have to wait until the result is available.

CompletableFuture meets the requirement, and more than that.

Java Future

In multithreaded programming, Java Future with Callable is very important for tasks which we want to know status and get the returned object.

This article give us an example for how to work with Future and Callable inside.

Java 8 – Method References

Method References make it clear when referring to the existing method by name.

In the article Lambda Expressions and Functional Interfaces, we use lambda expressions to create anonymous methods and sometimes, calling an existing method is the only thing it does.

When using lambda expression without input arguments or those input arguments doesn’t make sense, we can use Method References to simplify the syntax.

This tutorial introduces four kinds of Method References and how to use them efficiently with some Functional Interfaces.

Java 8 – Functional Interfaces

Functional Interfaces is one of the new important things of Java 8. In previous article, we had a little view about common use cases of Lambda Expression including Runnable and ActionListener. They are example of Functional Interfaces.

This tutorial helps you have deeper concept of Functional Interface, then some interfaces which are provided in java.util.function package such as Predicate and Function.
