Hello,
Are there any good book available that has discussion J2SE 5.0's
new multithreading and synchronization techniques?

I bought Sierra's and Bate's SCJP 5.0 book but it does not have as
much what comes to new concurrent API that is in J2SE.

So, are there any other choices if you want to learn new concurrent API
that J2SE offers?

Cheers!

There is a short tutorial on this site which also has this.

Notice that there isn't too much to learn.

Basically that site covers all of it, which includes the lock "classes": Semaphore, Barrier, Exhanger, and Latch...

Also it has a chapter on the Executer and Callable interfaces.

The only thing i didn't see it cover is the atomic package, but you can look at the API and it is self explantory.

Hope it helps,

Roy.

"Java Threads, 3rd edition", published by O'Reilly is very good, in my opinion.

I agree with Ilja, Java Threads is a very good book. The authors know what they're talking about and don't just reiterate the API which is all too common.
