Hi ,welcome author . Does java 8 provide any new features to simplify the development of swing or web applications?

Thanks -

There is nothing explicit in java 8 that I am aware of that simplifies swing or web application development. JavaFX 8 has been released and it is able to take advantage of Java 8 features.
