Java 21 new feature: Virtual Threads #RoadTo21José Paumard on August 30, 2023
Virtual Threads are one of the most anticipated and exciting new feature of the JDK 21. They are a new model of threads, much lighter than the traditional platform threads. Virtual Threads are there to address the complexity and maintenance costs of asynchronous programming, without giving up on the performances this model gives.
With virtual threads, you can get the best throughput performances with simple imperative blocking code. This episode tells you all about it: it shows you how you can use them, and how Virtual Threads are working under the hood.
