Hello,

I want to learn Java Threads in complete detail, how to use them, apply them etc.

What is the popular book for Java Threads that is easy to read and grasp, and covers all the topics, not like Concurrent programming in Java...

Thanks.

Hi Hi,

If youre relatively new to Java Threading but know java, then I reccommend Java Threads by Scott Oaks and Henry Wong (O Reilly publish it). I bought it last week. Its not going to get you writing NASA rocket mission critical threaded applications but it will definitely give you the basis you need and protect you from making classic threading gaffs.

They incorporate swing code into the examples which was a mistake, SWING is completly irrelevant to the principles of threading in Java (ok, swing code uses threads but after that there is no relevance to MT coding). Its easy reading and if you're at home with swing then you'll probably dig this book. I'd give it a 7/10 based on what I've read of it so far.

have a nice weekend
