Can anyone tell me if the Fork/Join framework is covered by the exam?  I have been working with Scott and Jeanne's books in studying for the IZ0-819 exam and I don't see it covered in Concurrency.  However, I took a Udemy practice exam and there was a question about it.  Perhaps I just just stick with Jeanne and Scott's book as far a content goes?

I do see this in the Exam objectives/topics, so I would assume it is covered:

Create worker threads using Runnable and Callable, and manage concurrency using an ExecutorService and java.util.concurrent API

John,
No, it is not in scope for the exam.

The OCP 8 exam did have the fork/join framework in scope with the objective:

Use parallel Fork/Join Framework



Unsurprisingly, we covered it in our 809 (OCP 8) book. The topic is not in scope for the Java 11 exam which is why you don't see it covered in the 819 (OCP 11) exam.

Thanks, Jeanne!  One less thing to worry about for the exam.
