Uses of Package

Packages that use java.util.concurrent.locks
java.util.concurrent.locks Interfaces and classes providing a framework for locking and waiting for conditions that is distinct from built-in synchronization and monitors. 

Classes in java.util.concurrent.locks used by java.util.concurrent.locks
          A synchronizer that may be exclusively owned by a thread.
          Condition implementation for a AbstractQueuedLongSynchronizer serving as the basis of a Lock implementation.
          Condition implementation for a AbstractQueuedSynchronizer serving as the basis of a Lock implementation.
          Condition factors out the Object monitor methods (wait, notify and notifyAll) into distinct objects to give the effect of having multiple wait-sets per object, by combining them with the use of arbitrary Lock implementations.
          Lock implementations provide more extensive locking operations than can be obtained using synchronized methods and statements.
          A ReadWriteLock maintains a pair of associated locks, one for read-only operations and one for writing.
          An implementation of ReadWriteLock supporting similar semantics to ReentrantLock.
          The lock returned by method ReentrantReadWriteLock.readLock().
          The lock returned by method ReentrantReadWriteLock.writeLock().
