Section 9.8. Conclusion


9.8. Conclusion

Java was one of the first mainstream languages to provide support for threading at the language level and is now one of the first languages to standardize high-level threading utilities and APIs as well. In this chapter, we've covered both of these aspects. At this point, we've come to the end of our discussion of threads in Java and also, in a way, to the end of the first part of this book. In Chapters 1 through 9, we have discussed the Java language: its syntax and "built-in" features. In the rest of the book, we will focus mainly on the APIs and libraries that make up the rest of the Java platform. We will see that the real appeal of Java is the combination of this simple language married with powerful tools and standards.
