Parallel Fork/Join Framework In Java

Multicore processors are now widespread across server, desktop, and laptop hardware even on smaller devices such as small-phones and tablets. They open new possibilities for concurrent programming because the threads of a process can be executed on several cores in parallel. One important technique for achieving maximal performance in applications is the ability to split intensive tasks into chunks that can be performed in parallel to maximize the use of computational power.
In this post, we’ll starts with a brief recall of starting with the low-level mechanisms of dealing with concurrent programming, then rich primitives added by the java.util.concurrent packages before starting with fork/join tasks.
