Java theory and practice: Hey, where'd my thread go?

Sep 1, 2002 ... When the main thread in a single-threaded application throws an uncaught
exception, you are likely to notice because the stack trace is printed on the
console (and because the program stops). But in a multithreaded application,
especially one that runs as a server and is not attached to a console, thread ...

Java theory and practice: Thread pools and work queues

Jul 1, 2002 ... One of the most common questions posted on our Multithreaded Java
programming discussion forum is some version of how to create a thread pool. In
nearly every server application, the question of thread pools and work queues
comes up. In this article, Brian Goetz explores the motivations for thread ...

5 things you didn't know about ...: Multithreaded Java programming

Nov 9, 2010 ... While few Java™ developers can afford to ignore multithreaded programming
and the Java platform libraries that support it, even fewer have time to study
threads in depth. Instead, we learn about threads ad hoc, adding new tips and
techniques to our toolboxes as we need them. It's possible to build and ...

Java theory and practice: Dealing with InterruptedException

May 23, 2006 ... Many Java language methods, such as Thread.sleep() and Object.wait(), throw
InterruptedException. You can't ignore it because it's a checked exception, but
what should you do with it? In this month's Java theory and practice, concurrency
expert Brian Goetz explains what InterruptedException means, ...

Java theory and practice: Characterizing thread safety

see Related topics), Item 52 is entitled "Document Thread Safety," in which
developers are entreated to document in prose exactly what thread safety
guarantees are made by the class. This, like most of the advice in Bloch's ...

Java theory and practice: Safe construction techniques

Jun 1, 2002 ... Concurrent programming in Java applications is more complicated than it looks:
there are several subtle (and not so subtle) ways to create data races and other
concurrency hazards in Java programs. In this installment of Java theory and
practice, Brian Goetz looks at a common threading hazard: allowing ...

Javacore Thread State Reporting Change (Kevin Grigorenko's IBM ...

Dec 1, 2015 ... The Javacore.txt thread dump shows the state of each thread at the time of the
dump; most commonly, R for runnable, CW for conditional wait, B for blocked,
