The Definitive Guide to Jython: Python for the Java Platform (Expert's Voice in Software Development)

By Josh Juneau

Jython is an open resource implementation of the high-level, dynamic, object-oriented scripting language Python seamlessly built-in with the Java platform. The predecessor to Jython, JPython, is qualified as a hundred% natural Java. Jython is freely to be had for either advertisement and noncommercial use and is shipped with resource code. Jython is complementary to Java.

The Definitive consultant to Jython, written by way of the legit Jython crew leads, covers Jython 2.5 (or 2.5.x)―from the fundamentals to more complicated gains. This e-book starts off with a quick advent to the language after which trips via Jython’s diversified beneficial properties and uses.

The Definitive advisor to Jython is equipped for newcomers in addition to complicated clients of the language. The ebook presents a common review of the Jython language itself, however it additionally comprises intermediate and complex subject matters concerning database, internet, and graphical person interface (GUI) functions; net services/SOA; and integration, concurrency, and parallelism, to call a couple of.

Concurrent Programming on Windows

By Joe Duffy

“When you start utilizing multi-threading all through an software, the significance of unpolluted structure and layout is necessary. . . . This areas an emphasis on realizing not just the platform’s features but additionally rising top practices. Joe does an exceptional activity interspersing top practices along conception all through his book.”

– From the Foreword by means of Craig Mundie, leader learn and procedure Officer, Microsoft Corporation


Author Joe Duffy has risen to the problem of explaining how one can write software program that takes complete benefit of concurrency and parallelism. In Concurrent Programming on Windows, he explains the way to layout, enforce, and retain large-scale concurrent courses, basically utilizing C# and C++ for Windows.


Duffy goals to offer program, method, and library builders the instruments and strategies had to write effective, secure code for multicore processors. this is often very important not just for the categories of difficulties the place concurrency is inherent and simply exploitable—such as server functions, compute-intensive photo manipulation, monetary research, simulations, and AI algorithms—but additionally for difficulties that may be sped up utilizing parallelism yet require extra effort—such as math libraries, style exercises, file iteration, XML manipulation, and move processing algorithms.


Concurrent Programming on Windows has 4 significant sections: the 1st introduces concurrency at a excessive point, via a bit that specializes in the basic platform gains, internal workings, and API information. subsequent, there's a part that describes universal styles, most sensible practices, algorithms, and knowledge constructions that emerge whereas writing concurrent software program. the ultimate part covers the various universal system-wide architectural and procedure matters of concurrent programming.


This is the only ebook you’ll desire with the intention to research the easiest practices and customary styles for programming with concurrency on home windows and .NET.

Pthreads Programming: A POSIX Standard for Better Multiprocessing (O'Reilly Nutshell)

By Jacqueline Proulx Farrell, Dick Buttlar, Bradford Nichols

Computers are only as busy because the remainder of us these days. they've got plenty of projects to do right now, and wish a few cleverness to get all of them performed on the comparable time.That's why threads are visible a growing number of usually as a brand new version for programming. Threads were on hand for it slow. The Mach working approach, the allotted laptop surroundings (DCE), and home windows NT all characteristic threads.One benefit of so much UNIX implementations, in addition to DCE, is they agree to a lately ratified POSIX ordinary (originally 1003.4a, now 1003.1c), which permits your courses to be moveable among them. POSIX threads are generally called pthreads, after the observe that starts off the entire names of the functionality calls. the normal is supported by way of Solaris, OSF/1, AIX, and a number of other UNIX-based working systems.The concept in the back of threads programming is to have a number of initiatives working at the same time in the related software. they could percentage a unmarried CPU as strategies do, or make the most of a number of CPUs while to be had. In both case, they supply a fresh approach to divide the projects of a application whereas sharing data.A window interface can learn enter on dozens of other buttons, each one chargeable for a separate job. A community server has to just accept simultaneous calls from many purchasers, delivering each one with average reaction time. A multiprocessor runs a number-crunching application on numerous CPUs without delay, combining the implications whilst all are performed. most of these forms of purposes can make the most of threads.In this booklet you are going to study not just what the pthread calls are, but if it's a reliable thought to take advantage of threads and the way to lead them to effective (which is the complete reason behind utilizing threads within the first place). The authors delves into functionality concerns, evaluating threads to strategies, contrasting kernel threads to person threads, and exhibiting how one can degree pace. He additionally describes in an easy, transparent demeanour what all of the complex beneficial properties are for, and the way threads have interaction with the remainder of the UNIX system.Topics include:

  • Basic layout techniques
  • Mutexes, stipulations, and really good synchronization techniques
  • Scheduling, priorities, and different real-time issues
  • Cancellation
  • UNIX libraries and re-entrant routines
  • Signals
  • Debugging tips
