Java 7 Concurrency Cookbook: Does Java7 provide new features to make concurrency programming easier?

Hi Javier,

Concurrency programming in Java is hard to me. I'm not confident when my code runs in multi-thread environment. Does Java 7 provide some new features to make things easier?

I play a little with Scala this year. It seems the immutable objects is way easier to do concurrency programming. What's your opinion on this?

Thanks,
Qunfeng


To be or not to be. It's a question.

Hello Qunfeng

Java 7 doesn't introduce new features to make life easier to programmers. The most significant new feature it's the Fork/Join framework, but it's a kind of Executor and Executors where introduced in Java 5. I suppose that you know it. The new features of Java Concurrency API are oriented to concrete problems and they

I haven't worked with Scala yet, but it's on my list of pending tasks. I want to test the concurrency features of Scala, Groovy and Clojure.

If you need more info, please let me know.
