Concurrent Programming in Java¿: Design Principles and Pattern (2nd Edition) (英语) 平装 – 1999年11月4日
Doug Lea is one of the foremost experts on object-oriented technology and software reuse. He has been doing collaborative research with Sun Labs for more than five years. Lea is Professor of Computer Science at SUNY Oswego, Co-director of the Software Engineering Lab at the New York Center for Advanced Technology in Computer Applications, and Adjunct Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Syracuse University. In addition, he co-authored the book, Object-Oriented System Development (Addison-Wesley, 1993). He received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. from the University of New Hampshire.

Lea provides an intense introduction at the level of an advanced undergraduate course. It's fairly academic in tone, because he takes the time to provide thorough definitions and detailed examples. As a former academic who now designs and programs for a living, this is just what I was looking for. But don't buy this book expecting a cookbook of code to cut and paste. It's much more about providing you the fundamental tools to design your own concurrent classes, applications and frameworks.
Lea presupposes the user is fluent in Java, knows a bit about concurrent programming patterns involving mutexes, semaphores, etc, and is familiar with the basic object-oriented design patterns. If you're not up to speed in these areas, the path I followed was reading the following:
* Lewis's "Threads Primer" (warning: it's C/unix-based),
* Gosling and Joy's "Java Programming Language",
* Bloch's "Effective Java", and
* Gamma et al.'s "Design Patterns".
Even if you don't buy this book, consider using Lea's concurrent.util package available from his web site. It provides solid implementations of everything from simple mutexes to concurrent read-single write wrappers for Java collections (Sun's own wrappers simply synchronize all methods, which suffers reduced liveness compared to CRSW designs). And it's both elegantly designed and thoroughly javadoc-ed.
The first edition was great, and I've just finished reading the second edition cover to cover and it has taken my understanding of concurrent design to a new level. Just be warned that this book's not for novices or hobbyists; it's for programmers who need to design the guts of concurrent systems the "right" way and then implement them in Java, especially for extensible frameworks.
