There are times when Java developers have to learn new ways of writing code in order to stay up to date. There was a time when we saw this in functional programming with streams and then again in reactive programming with non-blocking IO. It is important for us as Java developers to know about Virtual Threads and Continuations because they make important changes to concurrency.
Project Loom is a new, revolutionary project in the OpenJDK that wants to make a lightweight version of threads called “virtual threads.”
A new project to change the way Java Threads work started in 2018. It hasn’t been put into use yet, but early access builds are available so you can try it out.
This implementation could change the way non-blocking code is written. In many cases, Java programmers can write their code sequentially and still get the same results as if they used reactive programming, which can be very complicated and hard to understand. Changes: This will be one of the biggest changes to the Java Platform. It’s going to be a big deal for people who want to make apps that are very big and fast. Existing code can also take advantage of this new technology with a few changes.
Every Java developer should know about this new project that will change the way we write non-blocking code.
In this class, you’ll learn the following:
- What is the reason why the Java Platform Threads don’t work well for a lot of people?
- How do Virtual Threads work, and why is it so important?
- To answer this question, we need to know what delimited continuations are.
- We use Virtual Threads with Completable Futures and Futures to help us do things.
- How are Virtual Threads made with Continuations?
Join me as I show you how to learn about Project Loom in a step-by-step and hands-on way. When you finish the course, you will have a good understanding of Virtual Threads and Continuations and how they can be used to write Java applications that can be very big and slow at the same time.
Check this out: Project Loom hasn’t been made yet. We can, however, write code with the Early Access Build, learn about this new technology, and be ready when the project goes into production when the Early Access Build comes out.
Who this course is for:
- Java programmers who want to learn more about Java Virtual Threads and Continuations
- People who want to find out how Java threads will change in the future should
