Described as a multicore-friendly, lightweight parallel framework, fork/join uses the strategy of recursively splitting a task into smaller subtasks; forking the subtasks into separate processes or threads, so that they run in parallel on multiple cores; and joining all subtasks to compose a result to return. Expected to be added to Java 7, it will boost the ease of writing parallel programs in Java.
