Dear All,

I am new to Java concurrency. I am currently having a look at how java concurrency works.
Can someone suggest me some good links, where i can understand the java 5 concurrency model and thread pool concepts
and how we can create thread pools?

Any pointers in this regards will be helpful.

The obvious starting point would be the Java Tutorial.
I'd be very wary of thread pools. If I need to manage a number of concurrent processes, I'd probably look at using a J2EE server to handle such details and concentrate on solving the business problem at hand.
