Hello!

Like to have samples how to take full benefits of the new concurrency package
included in Java 5.0.

Haven't found any books related this issue neither tutorials.
Does anyone know where to get more information (other that just plain
javadocs) for concurrent programming in Java 5.0?

Cheers!

Hi,

The book Java 1.5 Tiger : A Developer's Notebook (Developer's Notebook) has about 25 pages on Threading. You can download the examples here.

The concurrency update for 5.0 is relatively huge. This was one of the reasons why our book was practically a total rewrite. Some stuff, like the atomic libraries, required new techniques -- in this case, understanding optimistic locking.

There is a ton of stuff that will be difficult to just learn from examples... but if you want to try, feel free to download the examples from http://examples.oreilly.com/jthreads3/.
