Java Tutorial Index
Although in some sense "basic" in the sense of being built-in Java keywords, the
details of some of these can be problematic topics that are not well understood by
many Java programmers. In the following articles I hope to illuminate some of these
topics, but comments are always welcome on how to improve the information.
Other topics/areas of Java programming
- Collections: The Java Collections API is a powerful
set of classes for managing data structures such as maps, lists, trees etc.
- Servlets: The Servlet framework, supported by many hosting
companies, allows you to write server code in Java and integrate into a standard web server
such as Apache without having to worry (much) about protocol gubbinry such as decoding HTTP requests.
- Synchronization and Concurrency: Looks at questions such as how to share data efficiently among multiple threads and how to communicate between threads, exploring the Java concurrency libraries introduced in version 5 of the platform.
- Threads: clearly related to Synchronization and Concurrency,
but looks at some of the more "raw" details of creating and managing threads, including a look
at methods such as sleep() and yield(), using the Java Executors framework
introduced in Java 5, and other topics such as deadlock and OS thread scheduling.
