Java 8: Behind The Glitz and Glamour of The New Parallelism APIs


News: Java 8: Behind The Glitz and Glamour of The New Parallelism APIs

  1. I’m a great multi-tasker. Even as I’m writing this post, I can still find room to feel awkward about a remark I made yesterday at a party that had everyone looking at me strange. Well, the good news is I’m not alone – Java 8 is also pretty good at multi-tasking. Let’s see how.

    One of the key new features introduced in Java 8 is parallel array operations. This includes things like the ability to sort, filter and group items using Lambda expressions that automatically leverage multi-core architectures. The promise here is to get an immediate performance boost with minimal effort from our end as Java developers. Pretty cool.

    So the question becomes – how fast is this thing, and when should I use it? Well, the quick answer is sadly – it depends. Wanna know on what? read on.

    read on where?

    Here :)

  4. The URL to read[ Go to top ]

    "new features" was highlighted as a hyperlink - that's the URL that we were supposed to read. It would have been better to have had the title of the post as a symlink: "In 'Foo Bar Baz Quux,' I detailed my findings about the parallel streaming API. TL;DR: It rocks! Or it sucks. Something like that."


    The way it's written comes off like it's a request for hits, rather than an offering of information. I prefer the latter; I'll read the link if it's actually interesting and relevant, but as written it's kinda unclear whether I think it would be relevant or not.
