Multithread Programming in Java 5.0 - Conference Tutorial

Multithread Programming in Java 5.0 - Conference Tutorial  
 
 
ABSTRACT
 
 
Concurrency Utilities

The Java platform traditionally provides basic, low-level primitives for writing concurrent programs, but they are difficult to use properly. Many programs become clearer, shorter, faster, easier to write, and more reliable if higher-level synchronization constructs are used. 

A comprehensive library of concurrency utilities has been developed for inclusion in the 5.0 release of the JDK. This library, known as the java.util.concurrent package, contains thread pools, queues, concurrent collections, special-purpose locks, barriers, and related utilities. The addition to the Java platform is substantial and has changed the way we implement concurrent Java applications. 

This tutorial gives an overview of the Java 5.0 concurrency utilities.
