JDK8 Support in NetBeans

Currently, a preliminary NetBeans build supporting Java SE 8 is available. The current build can be downloaded from here. The build is being updated regularly. Please note it is a preliminary build, less stable than the release or even daily builds.


The new Java SE features supported by the build are:

Many features, including code completion, code highlighting, go to declaration, have been updated to know about these new language features.

Two new convertors are available to:

  • automatically convert suitable anonymous innerclasses into lambda expressions
  • automatically detect for-each loops that can be converted to use the new bulk data operations APIs and convert them

Both these convertors can also be applied to the whole project via the Refactor/Inspect and Transform.
