The Busy Java Developer's Guide to Concurrency (Part 1: Threads)
Java's threading capabilities took a serious turn for the better with the release of Java5, thanks to the incorporation of the java.util.concurrent packages, a set of pre-built components for thread pooling and execution, synchronization, and more.
In this presentation, we'll explore the Thread API, the Java threading model beneath it, and the enhancements made in Java5 to make it easier for Java code to walk and chew gum at the same time.
