Key FeaturesGet detailed coverage of important recipes on multi-threading and parallel programmingThis book takes a close look at the Java 9 APIs and their impact on concurrencySee practical examples on thread safety, high-performance classes, safe sharing, and a whole lot moreBook DescriptionWriting 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, youll 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.What you will learnFind out to manage the basic components of the Java Concurrency APIUse synchronization mechanisms to avoid data race conditions and other problems of concurrent applicationsSeparate the thread management from the rest of the application with the Executor frameworkSolve problems using a parallelized version of the divide and conquer paradigm with the Fork / Join frameworkProcess massive data sets in an optimized way using streams and reactive streamsSee which data structures we can use in concurrent applications and how to use themPractice efficient techniques to test concurrent applicationsGet to know tips and tricks to design concurrent applicationsAbout the AuthorJavier Fernandez Gonzalez is a software architect with almost 15 years of experience in Java technologies. He has worked as a teacher, researcher, programmer, analyst, and writer, and he now works as an architect in all types of projects related to Java, especially J2EE. As a teacher, has taken over 1,000 hours of training in basic Java, J2EE, and the Struts framework. As a researcher, he has worked in the field of information retrieval, developing applications for processing large amounts of data in Java, and has participated as a coauthor in several journal articles and conference presentations. Recently, he worked on developing J2EE web applications for various clients from different sectors (public administration, insurance, healthcare, transportation, and so on). Currently, he works as a software architect. He is the author of the book, Java 7 Concurrency Cookbook and Mastering Concurrency Programming with Java 8 by Packt.Table of ContentsThread ManagementBasic Thread SynchronizationThread Synchronization UtilitiesThread ExecutorsFork/Join FrameworkParallel and Reactive StreamsConcurrent CollectionsCustomizing Concurrency ClassesTesting Concurrent ApplicationsAdditional InformationConcurrent Programming Design
