Book summary

Building sophisticated Java applets means learning about threading--if you need to read data from a network, for example, you can't afford to let a delay in its delivery lock up your entire applet. Java Threads introduces the Java threading API and uses non-computing analogies--such as scenarios involving bank tellers--to explain the need for synchronization and the dangers of deadlock. Scott Oaks and Henry Wong follow up their high-level examples with more detailed discussions on building a thread scheduler in Java, dealing with advanced synchronization issues, and handling exceptions.
