Master the art of fast, effective Java development with the power of concurrent and parallel programming
About This Book
Who This Book Is For
The book is for Java developers and programmers at an intermediate to advanced level. It will be especially useful for developers who want to take advantage of task-based recipes using Java 9’s concurrent API to program thread-safe solutions.
What You Will Learn
Writing concurrent and parallel programming applications is an integral skill for any Java programmer. Java 9 comes with a host of fantastic features, including 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. The book covers all the elements of the Java Concurrency API, with essential recipes that will help you take advantage of the exciting new capabilities.
You will learn how to use parallel and reactive streams to process massive data sets. Next, you will move on to create streams and use all their intermediate and terminal operations to process big collections of data in a parallel and functional way.
Further, you’ll discover a whole range of recipes for almost everything, such as thread management, synchronization, executors, parallel and reactive streams, and many more. At the end of the book, you will learn how to obtain information about the status of some of the most useful components of the Java Concurrency API and how to test concurrent applications using different tools.
Style and approach
This recipe-based book will allow you to explore the exciting capabilities of concurrency in Java. After reading this book, you will be able to comfortably build parallel applications in Java 9.
