GPars has become the de facto standard framework for concurrency and parallelism when programming using Groovy. It is not a static library though it must move with the times, and the Groovy times are moving to have static as well as dynamic compilation, and the use if the invokedynamic instruction. In this session we will look at some of the features of GPars and assess progress of Groovy/GPars for parallel execution.
Of course GPars can also be used from Java, and Java is about to undergo the biggest revolution since Java 1 -- Java 5 was a minor change to Java in comparison. How does the Groovy and GPars cope in the face of Java 8?
