Mutual exclusion

Mutual exclusion: Parallel and Concurrent Programming with Java 1
Mutual exclusion: Parallel and Concurrent Programming with Java 1

In this video, learn about how a segment of code that accesses a shared resource is a critical section and should not be executed by more than one thread or process at a time. Gain an understanding of how a mutex or lock can be used to enforce mutual exclusion and protect a critical section by limiting access to one thread at a time. Also, learn that atomic operations execute as a single, indivisible action that cannot be interrupted by other concurrent processes.
