What is a Functional interface in Java 8? @Functional Annotation Examples Tutorial

The Functional interface is one of the most important concepts of Java 8 which actually powers lambda expression but many developers don't put enough effort to understand it and spend time learning lambda expression and Stream API without first understanding the role of functional interface in Java 8. Unless you know what is a functional interface and how lambda is related to it, you can't use powerful features of Java 8 like Lambda expression and Stream API. Without knowledge of functional interface, you won't be able to understand where you can use a lambda in the code but also you will struggle to write lambda expression the method is expecting, hence, it's important to have a good understanding of functional interface in Java 8.

How to Convert a Lambda Expression to Method Reference in Java 8?

But, the big question is, how do you find whether you can replace a lambda with method reference? Yes, it's not that easy, especially if you have been using Java 8 only for a couple of months and struggling to get the functional programming concepts and idioms sorted in your head. Sometimes, IDEs like IntelliJ IDEA and Eclipse does offer some hints to convert lambda expression to method reference but it does make sense to learn the logic behind it, otherwise, it won't make sense.

Top 5 Spring Microservices Courses with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud

Microservices is the new buzz word in software development word and everybody is talking about it, but it's been in practice for quite some time especially in form of RESTful web services. The idea of Microservices is simple, breaking a big monolithic application which contains everything from UI to service layer to database into small chunks of applications which are loosely coupled and can work on their own.
