guava vs Java 8: What are the differences?

The Guava project contains several of Google's core libraries that we rely on in our Java-based projects: collections, caching, primitives support, concurrency libraries, common annotations, string processing, I/O, and so forth.

Java 8 includes features for productivity, ease of use, improved polyglot programming, security and improved performance.
