I am new to concurrency and would be thankful if someone could help.

I wrote the following code which has 2 arrays and in the 3rd array I am storing the answer of corresponding 1st and 2nd array. Can someone please tell me how to make it run in parallel? If possible please tell me 2 methods - 1. Using Threads and 2. Using Java 5 or 6 concurrent library. Thanks

The Sun tutorial should be a good place to start learning about threads (and the concurrency package)...

This isn't a subject that you can learn from one example, posted in a forum topic.
