>Again hijacking the thread,
This is the first time I write something in another's thread, you can easily
check it if you want. And I did so because I'm worry with this issue. My own
question (the first thread of this month) got not a replay, just your post
asking me for the error message. 
> there is no need to store a lambda in a static final field
Yes, there is, at least in my case. Sometimes I use lambdas to define custom
properties that would initialize static fields by reading their values from
a file.
I do this static initialization at the very beginning, before the
of these classes are called. And I need the lambdas for this.


Anyway, I'm ready to admit that this approach is heterodox and need to be

But a poor design don't justifies a javac failure.
