Jack works completely different from Retrolambda. Regarding static code analysis, I’m not talking about intellij. Check out pmd, findbugs and their friends. You’ll be surprised that Java 7 and Java 8 had different set of checks, and you’ll need to spend time to setup this tools to work with Java 8 but with Java 7 checks set.
