Yes, the book covers the most important features of the Java 7 Concurrency API. We gave more importance to the new features in the Java 7 version, but it include recipes that show how to use the basic features of the concurrency API. For example, the first chapter of the book include the following recipes
-Creating and running a thread
-Getting and setting thread information
-Interrupting a thread
-Controlling the interruption of a thread
-Sleeping and resuming a thread
-Waiting for the finalization of a thread
-Creating and running a daemon thread
-Processing uncontrolled exceptions in a thread
-Using local thread variables
-Grouping threads into a group
-Processing uncontrolled exceptions in a group of threads
-Creating threads through a factory
Thanks Javier Fernandez Gonzalez. Guess This is what I was looking for. Just one more thing, does it include some real time examples to explain the concepts?

Hi Suhaib. What do you mean with real time?. We have tried that the examples reflect real world situations so you can use it in your applications. Take into account that each recipe explains a concept using an example and they have between 4 and 10 pages, so the examples can't be very big.

It seems that Indian posters (or at least, posters with names that appear Indian to Western eyes) often use "real time" to mean what the rest of the English-speaking world would call "real world". No relation to "real time" as used in the US, which is completely different.
