Use in Atomic Calculations

  • Ralph Lecessi
Chapter

Abstract

The classes in the java.util.concurrent.atomic package support atomic operations on variables such that a single read or write operation cannot be interrupted by another thread. The AtomicInteger class protects an underlying int value by providing methods that perform atomic operations on the value. Atomic values can be accumulated, updated, and compared. Atomic Longs, Booleans, Arrays, and References are provided.
