CPU Impact of Multi-Thread Applications

This chapter provides tutorial notes and example codes on CPU impact of multi-thread Java applications. Topics include CPU intensive thread test class, PrimeCalculator.java; CPU-Thread utilization of single-thread and multi-thread processes; maximum total productivity of multi-thread applications; thread execution priority; JRockit and HotSpot JVM comparison.
