Java Concurrent Programming: Multithreading and Multicore

Java Multicore, Multi-threading, Parallel Programming, and Concurrent Programming.

A modern computer has several CPU’s or several cores within one CPU. The ability to leverage these multi-cores can be the key for a successful high-volume application. Because the advances in operation systems, microprocessors and CPU systems, multicore and multithreading become available as an important programming paradigm for programmers.

Concurrency is the ability to run several programs or several parts of a program in parallel. If a time consuming task can be performed asynchronously or in parallel, this improve the throughput and the interactivity of the program.

This course is an introductory course for concurrent programming using Java programming language. Currently, we are focused on Java 8 SE version.

Course topics includes the following:

1. Concurrency: Process and Threads
2. Improvements and issues with concurrency
3. Concurrency in Java
4. The Java memory model
5. Immutability and Defensive Copies
6. Threads in Java
7. Threads pools with the Executor Framework
8. Futures and Callables
9. CompletableFuture
10. Nonblocking algorithms
11. Fork-Join in Java 8

12. Deadlock

13. About this website
14. Links and Literature

Students to take this course need to have some programming experience in Java language, especially students who finished Java Programming Essentials and Java Object-Oriented Programming in this same Java course series.
