The Producer-Consumer problem is a common issue to address when we have concurrent producer and consumer threads working with a bounded buffer. Solving this problem covers a variety of synchronization mechanisms in Java, and this course covers the implementation of synchronization blocks, locks, Condition objects, and Java's built-in data structures.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Discover the key concepts covered in this course
    Define a producer task that can run concurrently with a consumer using a shared queue
    Develop a consumer task that works with a concurrent producer through a shared buffer
    Recognize the behavior of producer and consumer threads when working with a shared bounded buffer
    Use a reentrantlock to access the shared queue for the producer-consumer problem
  • Recognize the role of conditions in enabling different threads to wait on different conditions on the same object
    Verify the validity of a solution to the producer-consumer problem with multiple producer and consumer threads
    Implement a solution to the producer-consumer problem using java's built-in arrayblockingqueue
