Diogo Guerra commented on CASSANDRA-8565:

It would be interesting to revisit this suggestion

> Hi, I'm doing research on new concurrent constructs in Java 8. I found CompletableFuture
in Java 8 has the same functionality as Guava ListenableFuture. But CompletableFuture is much
nicer because it comes together with Lambda expression in Java 8, and it is monadic, which
makes the code more readable and cleaner. Also, it provides more ways to compose different
tasks. Therefore, using CompletableFuture instead of ListenableFuture is better for future
extension and maintenance of the code.
> I also created a pull request on the Github repo and refactored one ListenableFuture
instance, so you can see the diff (you don't have to apply that patch): 
> I'm just wondering your opinion on this kind of refactoring (or migrating the code from
Java 7 to Java 8). Do you think the refactoring is useful? Do you have any plan to use Java
