AtomicLongFieldUpdater

extends Object

   ↳ java.util.concurrent.atomic.AtomicLongFieldUpdater<T>

Class Overview

A reflection-based utility that enables atomic updates to designated volatile long fields of designated classes. This class is designed for use in atomic data structures in which several fields of the same node are independently subject to atomic updates.

Note that the guarantees of the compareAndSet method in this class are weaker than in other atomic classes. Because this class cannot ensure that all uses of the field are appropriate for purposes of atomic access, it can guarantee atomicity only with respect to other invocations of compareAndSet and set on the same updater.

Protected Constructors

protected AtomicLongFieldUpdater ()

Added in API level 1

Protected do-nothing constructor for use by subclasses.

Public Methods

public long addAndGet (T obj, long delta)

Added in API level 1

Atomically adds the given value to the current value of the field of the given object managed by this updater.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to get and set
delta long: the value to add
Returns
long the updated value

public abstract boolean compareAndSet (T obj, long expect, long update)

Added in API level 1

Atomically sets the field of the given object managed by this updater to the given updated value if the current value == the expected value. This method is guaranteed to be atomic with respect to other calls to compareAndSet and set, but not necessarily with respect to other changes in the field.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to conditionally set
expect long: the expected value
update long: the new value
Returns
boolean true if successful
Throws
ClassCastException if obj is not an instance of the class possessing the field established in the constructor

public long decrementAndGet (T obj)

Added in API level 1

Atomically decrements by one the current value of the field of the given object managed by this updater.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to get and set
Returns
long the updated value

public abstract long get (T obj)

Added in API level 1

Gets the current value held in the field of the given object managed by this updater.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to get
Returns
long the current value

public long getAndAdd (T obj, long delta)

Added in API level 1

Atomically adds the given value to the current value of the field of the given object managed by this updater.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to get and set
delta long: the value to add
Returns
long the previous value

public long getAndDecrement (T obj)

Added in API level 1

Atomically decrements by one the current value of the field of the given object managed by this updater.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to get and set
Returns
long the previous value

public long getAndIncrement (T obj)

Added in API level 1

Atomically increments by one the current value of the field of the given object managed by this updater.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to get and set
Returns
long the previous value

public long getAndSet (T obj, long newValue)

Added in API level 1

Atomically sets the field of the given object managed by this updater to the given value and returns the old value.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to get and set
newValue long: the new value
Returns
long the previous value

public long incrementAndGet (T obj)

Added in API level 1

Atomically increments by one the current value of the field of the given object managed by this updater.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to get and set
Returns
long the updated value

public abstract void lazySet (T obj, long newValue)

Added in API level 9

Eventually sets the field of the given object managed by this updater to the given updated value.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to set
newValue long: the new value

public static AtomicLongFieldUpdater<U> newUpdater (Class<U> tclass, String fieldName)

Added in API level 1

Creates and returns an updater for objects with the given field. The Class argument is needed to check that reflective types and generic types match.

Parameters
tclass Class: the class of the objects holding the field
fieldName String: the name of the field to be updated
Returns
AtomicLongFieldUpdater<U> the updater
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the field is not a volatile long type
RuntimeException with a nested reflection-based exception if the class does not hold field or is the wrong type, or the field is inaccessible to the caller according to Java language access control

public abstract void set (T obj, long newValue)

Added in API level 1

Sets the field of the given object managed by this updater to the given updated value. This operation is guaranteed to act as a volatile store with respect to subsequent invocations of compareAndSet.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to set
newValue long: the new value

public abstract boolean weakCompareAndSet (T obj, long expect, long update)

Added in API level 1

Atomically sets the field of the given object managed by this updater to the given updated value if the current value == the expected value. This method is guaranteed to be atomic with respect to other calls to compareAndSet and set, but not necessarily with respect to other changes in the field.

May fail spuriously and does not provide ordering guarantees, so is only rarely an appropriate alternative to compareAndSet.

Parameters
obj T: An object whose field to conditionally set
expect long: the expected value
update long: the new value
Returns
boolean true if successful
Throws
ClassCastException if obj is not an instance of the class possessing the field established in the constructor
