Java Concurrency - Pervasive DataRush Released

March 31, 2009

I've written about my experiences with DataRush in the past when it was still in beta. Now, DataRush has been revamped to be all-Java (no more XML configuration files required) and it's been released. You can read the press release at here.


DataRush allows you to focus on writing Java code to solve business problems, not multi-threaded, parallel processing, concurrency problems. DataRush takes care of that for you, automatically scaling your application to the number of processors and cores available when you deploy it. The promise of DataRush is to automatically scale your code to take advantage of mulit-core hardware, without the need to worry about issues such as locking and threading. 


The DataRush framework supports numerous OS platforms (Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, and so on), as well as processors (Intel, AMD, Sun SPARC, and IBM Power). Check it out for yourself at
