This web page is a starting point for discussions of and information
concerning the Java Memory Model (Chapter
17 of the Java
Language Specification). The Java Memory Model defines how threads
interact through memory. It used to be somewhat unclear and unnecessarily
limiting, and so was revised. This is a reference page for that revision.
The official site for JSR 133 - The Java(tm) Memory Model and Thread
Specification Revision - is here.
For those wishing to understand the memory model in full
A journal submission about the memory model that combines Jeremy Manson's
dissertation, the POPL paper and the CSJP paper. For those interested
in a thorough discussion of the memory model issues, this is the best bet.
