What are the characteristics of a Java 8 lambda expression in Java8?

A lambda expression is characterized by the following syntax -

parameter -> expression body

Following are the important characteristics of a lambda expression -

Optional type declaration - No need to declare the type of a parameter. The compiler can inference the same from the value of the parameter.

Optional parenthesis around parameter - No need to declare a single parameter in parenthesis. For multiple parameters, parentheses are required.

Optional curly braces - No need to use curly braces in expression body if the body contains a single statement.

Optional return keyword - The compiler automatically returns the value if the body has a single expression to return the value. Curly braces are required to indicate that expression returns a value.
