Code for this article

It measures the performance of task processors Serial vs Thread Pool vs ForkJoin.

We read tasks types with TaskProducer from tasks.txt file, and generate random data for them. Then tasks are fed into a processor implementation.




Processors execute the task solving it using a TaskSolver. Results are signaled to a TaskResultHandler that counts down on a latch as Tasks get solved. The latch then continues with a performance counter that measures how much it took to solve the tasks.
