June 11, 2009: Introduction to Java Concurrency

Concurrency involves running multiple tasks simultaneously. Java has been designed from the start support multi threading. However, using Java concurrency comes at a price of vigilance, as effects of multiple threads can be essentially non- deterministic. This situation can lead to hard to reproduce bugs, unless the foundations of Java threading are well understood. Even so, multithreading can have great advantages in the areas of improved application design and performance.

This talk will introduce concurrency through example code, starting with basic features introduced in Java 1.0 through the latest major changes in JDK 1.5 We will also look at implementing concurrent processing within a web framework and a simulation application.
