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

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.
