Yes, it’s still valid in my mind. There isn’t big change in this area from 6 to 7. Fork- join is a new feature, which is very suitable for divide-and-conquer type of. making it the perfect Java Concurrency reference manual. Java Concurrency in Practice is an invaluable compilation of threading know-how for Java. I just finished reading the monumental book Java Concurrency in Practice, the definitive guide to writing concurrent programs in Java from.

See the original article here. Structuring Concurrent Applications Chapter 6.
Stay ahead with the world’s most comprehensive technology and business concurency platform. For this reason, the book explains the usage of several standard libraries: Now this same team provides the best explanation yet of these new features, and of concurrency in general. Annotations for Concurrency Bibliography Index.
Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead? Learn more about Brian ;ractise at al. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason: Is Java Concurrency in Practice still valid? Do you still 3 years later have plans to update the book? It takes focus to get through this book, and I spent several dozen hours to read the 16 chapters. Sharing Objects Chapter 4.
Java SE 5 and 6 are a huge step forward for the development of concurrent applications, with improvements concurfency the Java Virtual Machine to support high-performance, highly scalable concurrent classes and a rich set of new concurrency building blocks. CPUs are different machines, and coordinating between them is relatively more costly than allowing independent executions. 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.
Effectively exploiting concurrency is becoming more and more important now that Moore’s Law is delivering more cores but not faster cores, and this book will show you how to do it. Threads are a fundamental part of the Java platform.
Book Review: ‘Java Concurrency in Practice’
Java Concurrency in Practice provides you with the concepts and techniques needed to write safe and scalable Java programs for today’s–and tomorrow’s–systems.
Basic concepts are necessary for understanding what’s going on in your VM, but they are an insufficient level of abstraction for productive work. This book has been indispensable, and I am glad that I got it before I had decided to write even a single line of concurrent code. This is a book I am recommending to all my readers of The Java Mava Newsletterbecause it is interesting, useful, and relevant to the problems facing Java developers today.
Heinz Kabutz The Java Specialists’ Newsletter “I’ve focused a career on simplifying simple problems, but this book ambitiously and effectively works to simplify a complex but critical subject: Even if you’re just writing a Servlet, that code could become a target for concurrency.

Opinions expressed by DZone contributors are their own. Moreover, partial failure is always around the corner as threads run independently. This book is a must-read for anyone who uses threads and cares about performance.
For this reason, the book explains the usage of several standard libraries:. Tushar Jsva 99 7. If you are going to start your project using Java 8 you might want to consider fresh books and tutorials as cconcurrency because of new stuff appeared in Java 8 like streams,lambdas and new atomics – that changes development methods a little bit.
Rich Drummond 2, 10 Thread Safety Chapter 3. Join the DZone community and get the full member experience. Jaa is a new feature, which is very suitable for divide-and-conquer type of problems.
It’s probably saved me countless hours.

Reinventing the wheel can be an error-prone task that produces inferior results, and it should not be the only option just because it’s the only approach you know. With Safari, you learn ib way you learn best. JDK7 adds the fork-join framework but that is an enhancement rather than a replacement for earlier concurrency tools. Cliff Click Senior Software Engineer, Azul Systems “I have a strong interest in concurrency, and have probably written more thread deadlocks and made more synchronization mistakes than most programmers.
I had very serious doubts that it would be current and useful given that this edition was published so long ago.
