Subject RE: [ThreadPool] Is this alive? Why not use commons-pool?
Date Thu, 15 May 2003 17:43:53 GMT
We have used the pre-JSR-166 java.util.concurrent package for our thread
pool on top of 1.3.1. 

FYI, it is freely available here:

Even though ThreadPool has "pool" in its name, it is fundamentally different

that commons-pool.  The symantics of using a thread pool are quite different

than a normal object pool.  Thread pools are better named task queues or 
work queues.

The upcoming Java 1.5 has built in support for thread pools in the new 
java.util.concurrent package.
