Functional Java is an open source library that aims to prepare the Java programming language for the inclusion of closures. It also serves as a platform for learning functional programming concepts by introducing these concepts using a familiar language. The library is intended for use in production applications and is thoroughly tested using the technique of automated specification-based testing with ScalaCheck.

Java 7 is to include a new closure syntax. Functional Java make good use of the new syntax.

So... closures....

Now as long as we're glomming new stuff onto Java, can we please have at least local type inference?

As if Java isn't big enough already with all the J2EE technologies.
