Overview

An in-depth introduction to concurrent and distributed computing with Java

Combining the two key types of Java programming, Concurrent and Distributed Computing in Java offers both professionals and students a comprehensive guide to fundamental concepts necessary for mastering Java programming.

The text is presented in two parts. The first deals with techniques for programming in shared-memory based systems and covers concepts in Java such as:

  • Threads
  • Synchronized methods
  • Waits and notify
  • Multi-threaded programming
  • Algorithms for mutual exclusion, consensus, atomic objects, and wait-free data structures

The second half of the text deals with programming in a message-passing system, and covers:

  • Resource allocation problems
  • Logical clocks
  • Global property detection
  • Leader election
  • Message ordering
  • Agreement algorithms
  • Checkpointing
  • Message logging

Avoiding excessive mathematical notation while explaining important concepts with both rigor and clarity, this up-to-date text will prove a valuable resource for interested professionals and students alike.
