When I put the book stuff up, I tried to rank them with the best on the left. Go ahead and click on any book and you'll be able to see more about. Including the review ratings and the sales ranking.

Prashant,
I first checked out the Java tutorial on threads at the sun site. After this i checked out the book Java Threads (A defenite no from my side), the core java II section on threads is excellent(Core Java Volume II -Advanced Features , Sun Microsystems Press) . For advanced stages i am checking out concurrent programming which is indeed a great book for advanced users.

Prashant;
While you're figuring this stuff out, be sure and get a good picture in your head of the thread states and what each one means, and what <code>Thread</code> and <code>Object</code> methods control movement between the states. The "Concurrent..." book is probably the best, but its a difficult read (scholarly, in fact). There was an earlier post in this forum that pointed to a good thread state diagram - be sure to check that out, its the best one I've seen.
On the OOAD stuff, Booch is the classic but kind of dry. Check out "UML Distilled", Fowler is a very readable author and knows whats important.

thanks rahul and jypl,
I have seen the books and read reviews about all the books
the most point have been scored by concurrent programming in java and thread programming and also java threads which paul has suggested in his bunk house. So what do you suggest me to buy
which will install all those basic about thread and make then rock soild(describing myself as a beginner at threads).
thanks
