Did you know that database classes, that require many lines of Java and SQL code, may be replaced with a single line of Java 8 code? In this tutorial session you will learn how to use standard Java 8 Streams as an alternative to traditional Object Relational Mappers (ORM). We will use the open-source tool Speedment to show how development speed can be increased and how the application code can be more concise and run faster.
