Java 9 Concurrency Cookbook – Second Edition

Key FeaturesGet detailed coverage of important recipes on multi-threading and parallel programmingThis book takes a close look at the Java 9 APIs and their impact on concurrencySee practical examples on thread safety, high-performance classes, safe sharing, and a whole lot moreBook DescriptionWriting concurrent and parallel programming applications is an integral skill for any Java programmer. Java 9 comes with a host of fantastic features, which includes significant performance improvements and new APIs. This book will take you through all the new APIs, showing you how to build parallel and multi-threaded applications. It covers all the elements of the Java Concurrency API, with essential recipes that will help you take advantage of the exciting new capabilities.This book will help you to build highly scalable, robust, and concurrent applications. The recipe-based approach is ideal for Java developers who want to learn concurrency in a practical and example-based manner. We will explore topics such as thread management, synchronization, executors, parallel and reactive streams, and a whole lot more.What you will learnFind out to manage the basic components of the Java Concurrency APIUse synchronization mechanisms to avoid data race conditions and other problems of concurrent applicationsSeparate the thread management from the rest of the application with the Executor frameworkSolve problems using a parallelized version of the divide and conquer paradigm with the Fork / Join frameworkProcess massive data sets in an optimized way using streams and reactive streamsSee which data structures we can use in concurrent applications and how to use themPractice efficient techniques to test concurrent applicationsGet to know tips and tricks to design concurrent applicationsAbout the AuthorJavier Fernández González is a software architect with almost 15 years' experience with Java technologies.
