From the Back Cover:

  • The clear, practical guide to Java threads and concurrency
  • Proven design patterns and extensive code library
  • Expert techniques for optimizing networked/distributed applications
  • Avoiding deadlocks, race conditions, and synchronization problems

Threading, concurrency, and beyond: Your crystal-clear Java performance guide and code library!

Threading and concurrency are crucial to building high-performance Java applications — but they have a reputation for complexity. High-Performance Java Computing thoroughly demystifies them, helping developers leverage threading and concurrency to solve a wide variety of performance problems — especially in networked, distributed applications. This book delivers practical solutions, proven design patterns, and a rigorously tested code library: everything you need to build optimized Java software for technical, business, and e-Commerce applications. Coverage includes:

  • Java 2 Threads classes: daemon threads, thread control, scheduling, and more
  • Solving the key problems of parallelism: deadlocks, race conditions, and synchronization
  • Advanced techniques for optimizing concurrent code
  • Java monitors, parallelizing loops, and parallel execution of subroutines in shared memory
  • New design patterns for distributed application development

There's never been a more accessible, practical guide to Java multi-threading, concurrency, and other high-performance techniques. When performance really matters, turn to High-Performance Java Computing — and find the solution you're searching for!
