Hi Javier,
Congratulations on your new book. Do you cover much about the fork / join framework introduced in Java 7?
Many thanks

Hello Luke

Yes, the book includes a chapter (chapter 5) dedicated to the new Fork/Join framework. That chapter includes the following recipes that show how to use the most important features of that framework:

-Creating a Fork/Join pool
-Joining the results of the tasks
-Running tasks asynchronously
-Throwing exceptions in the tasks
-Canceling a task

The chapter 9, (Additional Information) also includes a recipe about the Fork/Join Framework:

-Processing uncontrolled exceptions in a ForkJoinPool class

The chapter 9 it's not included in the paper book, but you can download it from the Packt's website

If you need more info, please let me know.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
