4. Mastering Concurrency Programming with Java 9

mastering-decryptinfoBook Description:  

Java Concurrency in Practice arms readers with both the theoretical underpinnings and concrete techniques for building reliable, scalable, maintainable concurrent applications. Rather than simply offering an inventory of concurrency APIs and mechanisms, it provides design rules, patterns, and mental models that make it easier to build concurrent programs that are both correct and performant.

This book covers:

  • Master the principles that every concurrent application must follow
  • See how to parallelize a sequential algorithm to obtain better performance without data inconsistencies and deadlocks
  • Get the most from the Java Concurrency API components
  • Separate the thread management from the rest of the application with the Executor component
  • Execute phased-based tasks in an efficient way with the Phaser components
  • Solve problems using a parallelized version of the divide and conquer paradigm with the Fork / Join framework
