I am having trouble to use lambda expression within netbeans platform module.
I have downloaded jdk8 and lambda expression works fine in java aplication, but not in netbeans platform appliaction.
I have set the platform to use jdk8, though "source level" for each module does contain just 1.4-1.7 (if that is the issue. Not sure).
Any help would be appreciated
