This is a hands-on course which introduces you to the implementation of concurrency in a Java application. You will become familiar with setting up, configuring and launching multiple concurrent threads. You will implement the join() method to synchronize threads and will explore a variety of thread features including their states, transitions and how they can be interrupted.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Discover the key concepts covered in this course
    Define a task to be executed within a java thread by implementing the runnable interface
    Extend the thread class to define a task to be run in a thread
    Recognize the effect of the start() method in kicking off java threads
    Use the join() method to synchronize one thread with the execution of another
    Identify the different states of a thread and the possible transitions from them
    Verify whether a thread is active by invoking the isalive() method
  • Recognize the possible and default values for a java thread's priority
    Distinguish between user and daemon threads in java
    Build an application that implements multithreading to download multiple web pages concurrently
    Identify situations where multithreading can be applied to speed up executions
    Describe the mechanism of thread interruption in java
    Summarize the key concepts covered in this course
