What can scala do for multithreading that can't be done in Java
posted 8 years ago
With Java Concurrency API multithreaded programming became a lot easier, but I guess there is still room for improvements. However, I would like to ask Venkat Subramaniam the following:
As the book seem to claim that scala makes multithreading easier, is there some intrinsic value in scala that makes multithreaded programming easier? Or could one just as easily achieve the same with java by further improving the concurrency APIs?
