In this demo-only course you will cover the basics of synchronization of threads in Java in order to prevent the unpredictability of the race condition. You will get experience with the implementation of synchronized functions and blocks, and also the use of Java lock objects such as the ReentrantLock and StampedLock.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Discover the key concepts covered in this course
    Recognize the situations where a race condition could occur in java
    Implement synchronized functions to manage multiple threads updating the same resource
    Differentiate between synchronized functions and synchronized blocks in java
    Recall the conditions under which concurrent threads could encounter a deadlock in java
    Identify some of the options available to prevent the occurrence of deadlocks
  • Introduce a reentrantlock in your program to enable exclusive access to a shared resource
    Use the trylock() method of a reentrantlock to prevent a potentially long wait for a resource
    Configure a thread to wait on a resource for a limited amount of time by using the trylock() method of a reentrantlock
    Implement a stampedlock to regulate access to a shared resource
    Distinguish between a readlock and writelock for a java stampedlock
    Summarize the key concepts covered in this course
