Mastering Platform Threads in Java Course

Java threading, including updates to Java 21 platform Threads

Using Java 21

Duration of 1 Day


Let's write a ThreadPool together. First exercise. A sea of scared faces. Is the teacher kidding?

"Mastering Platform Threads in Java" is an intense one-day course that starts with the basics of platform threads using Java 21. We then look at laws that help us to write correct threaded code. We then go to higher-level constructs that make threading much easier to use, always considering how our code would work on virtual threads. We end with diagnosing race conditions and deadlocks.

Each section ends with exercises that we solve to hone our skills as Java programmers. Some of these exercises (write a ThreadPool) have challenged hundreds of Java programmers. They have all been rewritten to illustrate the extended threading library in Java 21. In solving these, we learn how inter-thread communication works. We learn how to keep our classes thread-safe. We also learn about thread states.

We use OpenJDK 21 for this course, taking full advantage of the new extended threading constructs, such as AutoCloseable ExecutorServices. However, programmers with Java 11 or 17 knowledge will also be able to follow.

We are selective on what we cover in this course. Our intention was to create a short course that will teach enough to help in every-day work, and to prepare for using virtual threads.
