NixMashup for April 12, 2014

Greetings from Vermont! In this NixMashup we heap praises on the Eclipse Team who brings us Java 8 support in all Kepler downloads. Another Skype alternative for Ubuntu users is Google Hangouts in today’s How-To. Apache is working on an OData Java Client and Server Implementation that looks promising. Two Java Lambdas, Streams and Collections links, cool Eclipse Hidden Features Expanded, RAP (the new Eclipse application kind), Technology Trends and your 401K, Writing Code Every Day, and an interview with The Hound.

If you want to catch all of the NixMashup link action and see the links as they are created, follow the NixMash Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/nixmash. Most NixMashup links are first posted to the NixMash feed for later compilation here in NixMashup.
