Concurrency design patterns

In software engineering, a design pattern is a solution to a common problem. This solution has been used many times, and it has proved to be an optimal solution to the problem. You can use them to avoid 'reinventing the wheel' every time you have to solve one of these problems. Singleton or Factory are the examples of common design patterns used in almost every application.

Concurrency also has its own design patterns. In this section, we describe some of the most useful concurrency design patterns and their implementation in the Java language.


This design pattern explains how to implement the situation where a task has to notify an event to another task. The easiest way to implement this pattern is with a semaphore ...
