Project Loom : A First Impression

Loom was announced at Spring One, May 25th, 2022. Our colleague Sander has been experimenting with Project Loom and shares his first experiences . Loom is a newer project in the Java/JVM ecosystem (hosted by OpenJDK) that attempts to address limitations in the traditional concurrency model. In particular, Loom offers a lighter alternative to threads along with new language constructs for managing them.
