Testing concurrency code with MultithreadedTC

MultithreadedTC is a Java library for testing concurrent applications. Its main objective is to solve the problem of concurrent applications being non-deterministic. You can't control their order of execution. For this purpose, it includes an internal metronome to control the order of execution of the different threads that form the application. Those testing threads are implemented as methods of a class.

In this recipe, you will learn how to use the MultithreadedTC library to implement a test for LinkedTransferQueue.
