I'm just discovering your book and appreciate the effort you made that may save me (and others I hope) a lot of time discovering the main java 8 new concepts.

It seems to me that the Streams (as you describe then in the first chapters are conceptually equivalent to what we called CMS Pipes in the time of IBM Mainframes and the VM-CMS system. If as I expect now these concepts bring to java the same supplemental power that CMS Pipe brought to Rexx we are just at the first door of paradise.

Thanks to all the java people and thanks a lot to you for this so great news.
Java 8 will be installed on my machine real soon.

Re: from the past

Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for reading our book and sharing your enthusiasm smilie I am from the 1990s generation so I'm not too familiar with the CMS Pipes.

Did you find the chapters on Streams: 4 & 5 useful? Any feedback to improve the understanding? Anything you found unclear?

Many thanks!
