Anthony Lai on Java EE Concurrency Utilities
The 129th episode of the Java Spotlight podcast features an interview with Java EE Concurrency Utilities (JSR 236) spec lead Anthony Lai. As you may be aware, the Java EE Concurrency Utilities has been a long awaited and very important foundational API, especially for third party vendors to more easily integrate with the underlying application server runtime. Anthony talks with Roger Brinkley about the motivation for the JSR, it's long history, some of the API details, current status and the future.
You can listen to the full podcast here. It's really a great starting point for learning about the Java EE Concurrency Utilities. You can certainly give the proposed final draft a read yourself (the API recently passed it's final approval ballot). At fifty some pages, it is a very digestible specification. You can also try the API out with a GlassFish promoted build.
