Hi Javier,
Congratulations on your new book. Do you cover much about the fork / join framework introduced in Java 7?
Many thanks

Hello Luke

Yes, the book includes a chapter (chapter 5) dedicated to the new Fork/Join framework. That chapter includes the following recipes that show how to use the most important features of that framework:

-Creating a Fork/Join pool
-Joining the results of the tasks
-Running tasks asynchronously
-Throwing exceptions in the tasks
-Canceling a task

The chapter 9, (Additional Information) also includes a recipe about the Fork/Join Framework:

-Processing uncontrolled exceptions in a ForkJoinPool class

The chapter 9 it's not included in the paper book, but you can download it from the Packt's website

If you need more info, please let me know.
