AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater

public abstract class AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ java.util.concurrent.atomic.AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater<T>


A reflection-based utility that enables atomic updates to designated volatile int 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.

Summary

Protected constructors

AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater()

Protected constructors

AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater

Added in API level 1
AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater ()

Protected do-nothing constructor for use by subclasses.

Public methods

addAndGet

Added in API level 1
int addAndGet (T obj, 
                int delta)

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 int: the value to add
Returns
int the updated value

compareAndSet

Added in API level 1
boolean compareAndSet (T obj, 
                int expect, 
                int update)

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 int: the expected value
update int: 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

decrementAndGet

Added in API level 1
int decrementAndGet (T obj)

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
int the updated value

get

Added in API level 1
int get (T obj)

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
int the current value

getAndAdd

Added in API level 1
int getAndAdd (T obj, 
                int delta)

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 int: the value to add
Returns
int the previous value

getAndDecrement

Added in API level 1
int getAndDecrement (T obj)

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
int the previous value

getAndIncrement

Added in API level 1
int getAndIncrement (T obj)

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
int the previous value

getAndSet

Added in API level 1
int getAndSet (T obj, 
                int newValue)

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 int: the new value
Returns
int the previous value

incrementAndGet

Added in API level 1
int incrementAndGet (T obj)

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
int the updated value

lazySet

Added in API level 9
void lazySet (T obj, 
                int newValue)

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 int: the new value

newUpdater

Added in API level 1
AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater<U> newUpdater (Class<U> tclass, 
                String fieldName)

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
AtomicIntegerFieldUpdater<U> the updater
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the field is not a volatile integer 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

set

Added in API level 1
void set (T obj, 
                int newValue)

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 int: the new value

weakCompareAndSet

Added in API level 1
boolean weakCompareAndSet (T obj, 
                int expect, 
                int update)

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 int: the expected value
update int: 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
