Fuctional programming has existed for decades, but only in the last few years has it gained the attention it deserves, for a lot of very good reasons. Unfortunately Java doesn't natively allow you to take advantage of functional programming. It seemed for a couple of years that Java 7 was going to fill this lack by implementing the BGGA specification.

"Is it Time for Functional Programming in Java?"

Nope. Java is procedural/OO, not functional.

Doesn't always have to be that way. At one time it didn't have enhanced loops, annotations or generics either (as limited as they are in the current version). It's time for it to catch up.
