The things taught about multithreading in non-dedicated books (and some dedicated books) are either overly simplified (often to the point of being dangerous when applied to real scenarios) or dead wrong (because the authors themselves didn't understand the topic).
As a result a lot of multithreaded code will work, usually, but only on a single CPU machine where there will never be multiple threads executing in parallel.
When run on a multicore or multiCPU machine they far more quickly run into trouble.
interesting I never thought of it. Yes we learn that mulithreading is design to speed up work especialy on multicore machines, but us non of has had chance to run pc with more then one cpu we don't give consideration to it. Will write to Santa get me new pc then...
It's overall pretty good (and I do have it), but I've heard that there are problems with parts of it.
You should IMO never rely on a single source of information anyway (easier said than done I know, especially if you're on a tight budget).
Help! I want to create a java program that finds the highest even integer among the values entered by the user. Stop asking values when a value less than 1 have been entered. If no even integer is entered, display "No Even Integer"
Hi, as I was told that my code doesn’t scale well at all, I thought perhaps I’d try to get a better understanding of interfaces/abstract classes and classes and the relationship between them.
I don’t want at this stage work on a big separate project as I've already got plenty ...
