Book Description

Stop dreading concurrency hassles and start reaping the pure power of modern multicore hardware. Learn how to avoid shared mutable state and how to write safe, elegant, explicit synchronization-free programs in Java or other JVM languages including Clojure, JRuby, Groovy, or Scala.


Programming Concurrency on the JVM is the first book to show you three prominent concurrency styles: the synchronization model of the JDK, Software Transactional Memory (STM), and actor-based concurrency. You'll learn the benefits of each of these models, when and how to use them, and what their limitations are so you can compare and choose what works best for your applications.
