Operation.java



Main.java



My questions:
1- How to get the return value from the Operation.java? It gets error for future.get() which i really don't know what else should i put in the code.
2- Do i need executor.shutdown for this?

future.get() method throws java.lang.InterruptedException, java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException which either you need to catch it or add throw for these exception in your main method.
I would suggest to have a look on Future Class APIs to understand its behaviour.
And yes, you need to add shutdown() to end the executor service otherwise it will continue to run indefinitely.


Thanks
