Hallo.

I am studying chapter 17 of the Java language Specification third edition to understand concurrency and Java's memory model.

I am surprised at how non-rigorous the description in the spec is, there are quite a few undefined terms. What alternatives does there exist where things are formally defined and precise ?

Not a "beginning" question. Too difficult. Moving thread.

Hallo again.

Just if someone else might find it useful, the following really reads like an improved version of Chapter 17 of the Java Language Specification Third edition:

JSR-133: JMM and Thread Specification

It didn't work as a link because you missed out "http://" I tried editing your post, and it now works.
