Java 8 and Eclipse

I want to start using Java 8, (early access here ), mostly because I like using closures (aka lambda expressions)

First you need a supportive IDE; apparentyl Eclipse (pueah) is not ready yet, but you can try e(fx)clipse:

Netbeans doesn't seem ready yet, it has only experimental support for lambda.

IntelliJ IDEA version 12 seems so far the only "solid" IDE to offer support for Java 8.
