Share JIRA with external partners

During my time at Atlassian, many JIRA administrators have asked, "How do I share JIRA with external partners in my development process?". External partners can integrate alongside your internal teams with JIRA. This article targets external partners who fully engage in the development process.

I'm a Clover developer at Atlassian, and I had an opportunity to work closely with new language features introduced in Java 8 during development of Clover 3.2.0 (which has the support for Java 8). I'd like to share my impressions about a major language feature – lambda functions. I'm pretty sure you've already read a lot of articles about lambdas, and already know how they are going to reduce boilerplate code. And I totally agree with this point. I can bet that most of anonymous in-line classes
