Synchronizers In Java - CyclicBarrier

Along with CountDownLatch, FutureTask and Semaphore, the Concurrency API in Java 5 also introduced a barrier – CyclicBarrier. This class is used as a barrier for a set of threads, to keep them waiting until all the threads have reached it. Once all the threads reach the barrier, it is tripped, allowing them to perform further execution. The number of threads in WAITING state, which when reached should trip the barrier, is passed as an argument to the constructor of CyclicBarrier. A Runnable action to be performed when the barrier is tripped can also be defined optionally while instantiating CyclicBarrier. The last thread to enter the barrier executes this action before the other waiting threads are released. If the action throws exception, the barrier is broken and all the other threads receive a checked exception BrokenBarrierException.
