Problems with threads: Learning Java Threads

Developing multithreaded applications is much easier when threads don’t interact, typically via shared variables. When interaction occurs, race conditions, data races, and cached variable problems can arise that make an application thread-unsafe. When using threads, it can cause increased complexity, and debugging your code can become much more difficult. It is possible to add logic to make sure data is synchronized across threads, but too much reliance on synchronization can lead to performance issues, which affect an application’s scalability. A race condition occurs when the correctness of a computation depends on the relative timing or interleaving of multiple threads by the scheduler.
