The ultimate guide to multithreading with Java technology!
Powerful techniques for enhancing application performance
Multithreaded program design for network and Internet applications
Extensive code examples throughout
Multithreading gives developers using the Java 2 platform a powerful tool for dramatically improving the responsiveness and performance of their programs on any platform, even those without inherent multithreading support. Multithreaded Programming with Java Technology is the first complete guide to multithreaded development with the Java 2 platform. Multithreading experts Bil Lewis and Daniel J. Berg cover the underlying structures upon which threads are built; thread construction; and thread lifecycles, including birth, life, death, and cancellation. Next, using extensive code examples, they cover everything developers need to know to make the most of multithreading, including:
Thread scheduling models and synchronization-with solutions for complex, real-world synchronization problems
Multithreaded program design for networked and Internet applications
Thread-specific data: use and implementation
Leveraging OS libraries to make Java-based multithreading more effective
Optimizing thread performance and designing for SMP hardware
Powerful techniques and comprehensive example code for improving Java-based application performance with multithreading!
