Multithreaded Programming with Java Technology by Bil Lewis

By Bil Lewis

Java bargains strong multithreading services -- even on working platforms that provide no inherent multithreading help. Multithreading offers Java builders a robust device for dramatically enhancing the responsiveness and function in their courses. Now there is a entire consultant to multithreaded programming with the Java 2 platform, written via multithreaded programming specialists Bil Lewis and Daniel J. Berg. begin through figuring out the explanation, primary ideas and foundations of multithreading, together with the constructions upon which threads are equipped, thread building and lifecycles. Then, utilizing large code examples, you are going to grasp thread scheduling types; synchronization variables; and how you can clear up advanced synchronization difficulties. The authors clarify thread-specific info, and exhibit how one can leverage OS libraries to make Java multithreading more beneficial. additionally they hide multithreaded software layout, interactions with RMI, instruments for construction threaded courses; and complex recommendations for maximizing thread functionality.

Sample text

This program relies completely on the accuracy of the sleep() method, something that is ill advised in a real program. For this example, that's OK. When you write programs, don't do that! time() + "threadB\t\tStarting... time() + "threadC\t\tStarting... time() + "threadD\t\tStarting... time() + "threadD\t\tInterrupted. time() + "threadE\t\tStarting... "); } } } All code examples in this book are available from the Web (see Code Examples). They are all as nearly identical to the same programs written in C from Multithreaded Programming with PThreads as we could make them.

Threads Standards There are three different definitions for native thread libraries competing for attention today: Win32, OS/2, and POSIX. The first two are proprietary and limited to their individual platforms (Win32 threads run only under NT and Win95, OS/2 threads only on OS/2). a. Pthreads) is intended for all computing platforms, and implementations are available or in development for almost all major UNIX systems (including Linux), along with VMS and AS/400—not to mention a freeware library for Win32.

Please keep in mind that these implementation details are included for your edification, but you should never write programs that depend upon them. They can change at any time, with no notification. Learn from the implementation; write to the specification. Thread Libraries There are two fundamentally different ways of implementing threads. The first is to write a userlevel library that is substantially self-contained. It will make calls to system routines, and it may depend upon the existence of certain kernel features, but it is fundamentally a user-level library and contains no "magic" hooks into secret kernel routines.
