The Pragmatic Craftsman :: Simplicity from complexity : by Stanley Kubasek ::

Threads in Java

If you consider yourself a well-rounded Java programmer you know threads. You must also know or heard about threads in Java 5. Or, the overhaul of threads in this version (and Java 6). This is a complicated topic but whether you like it or not, you must update your skills and learn about concurrent programming in the newest versions of Java.

I just started doing so. I actually feel pretty weak in this area. But I started erasing this gap and I hope to be “up to speed” soon. I ordered Java Concurrency in Practice (supposedly a must have), I ordered Thinking in Java, 4th edition (it is a great book – no, you cannot find the latest version online), and I read about threading online as well, links below.

Like I said, threading is a complicated topic in programming, but if you consider yourself a good programmer, you must master it.
