The Concurrency Toolset: JConch, Google Collections, and java.util.concurrent
JConch is a library that provides a few high-level tools for high-concurrency environments on the JVM. The java.util.concurrent package in the Java standard library provides low-level structures for managing concurrent communication. Learn here how to use both of them in order to produce clean, highly-concurrent, and highly-tunable code.
Programming in a concurrent fashion is quickly becoming mandatory for applications. This session will explore the best ways to do that on the JVM.
