This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I have variable that gets updated by different threads simultaneously. I don't want to control the simultaneous update through synchronization. Instead, i need to know how many threads updated the variable value simultaneously. I should not use synchronization concept as it will increase the serving time of those threads by waiting to get object lock released. How can i achieve this in Java.
Use a static counter and allow the variable update in a public method. Whenever an update is done, you can increment the counter.

I have many concurrent running http request serving threads. They will be creating an Object(? extends Object) for every request and save the object in a list.
Advice me some good data structure to implement this list.
I can't use ArrayList since it was not thread safe.
I dont like to use Vector - since its synchronized, it will make other threads to wait when one of the http thread was saving the object.
Also tried LinkedList, but there is data loss due to concurrent update.
This does not make sense. Whenever you use shared mutable state, you must synchronize access to it, or the results will be unpredictable. Obviously, you should not synchronize the entire code, but just those parts that access the shared mutable state. If this is just an integer counter you can use an AtomicInteger for the task.
