At the turn of the century I was developing and teaching a series of contract training courses in Java for a local IT company When they made the reuest for a course covering Java threads I needed a uick refresher in the subject This is the book that I used The content is as much a primer on threads multitasking than it is an in depth explanation of how threads are implemented in the Java programming language There is no large project while working code is included it is generally in the form of short snippets There are only two or three instances where the code example is than two pages long and there is a great deal of internal whitespaceTopics covered include controlling scheduling creating activating and deleting Java threads While this book is of course very dated regarding the specifics it still has value as an introduction to this critical and increasingly important coding techniue good bookfor basic and advanced aspect have been explained through some theory and examplei think you should read not only onceand if you have some uestionyou come back and find the answer in the book Not as deep as Concurrency in Practice but at the time the only book available on the topic was enough at the time but would not take you very far today
