guava vs Java 8: What are the differences?

Developers describe guava as "Google Core Libraries for Java 6+". 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. On the other hand, Java 8 is detailed as "*A development environment for building applications *". It is a revolutionary release of the world’s no 1 development platform. It includes a huge upgrade to the Java programming model and a coordinated evolution of the JVM, Java language, and libraries. Java 8 includes features for productivity, ease of use, improved polyglot programming, security and improved performance.

guava and Java 8 can be categorized as "Java" tools.

guava is an open source tool with 33K GitHub stars and 7.36K GitHub forks. Here's a link to guava's open source repository on GitHub.
