As you know Java 8 is already released and available for download. Now I am developer of Java based projects. So, I want to try the latest version of JDK 8 in Eclipse. Since I am using JDK for developing my most of the project it will be great if I am able to use JDK 8 in eclipse.
I have searched the details of Eclipse and now a days Eclipse is not providing JDK 8 support out of the box.
So, can any one tell me how to build and run Java 8 application in Eclipse?
don't worry there is plugin out there for Eclipse which will allow you to start using JDK 8 in your Eclipse.
After installation of the plugin you will be able to start using JDK 8 for compiling and running your applications.
