Sorry, I didn't read the question carefully. You are right David.

What I meant is that a volatile boolean is clearly protected, as you 
can't apply simple opration like ++ or -- on it. I don't know about :
volatile boolean b = Boolean.TRUE;
b = !b; // Might fails if used in a concurrent portion of the code.
