[concurrency-interest] Phaser question

Maybe I'm missing something but your main thread is registered with the
Phaser but never arrives, so any of the task threads calling
arriveAndAwaitAdvance would block forever.

  Subject: [concurrency-interest] Phaser question


         My code using the Phaser works the first time. I think here when
the onAdvance method is overridden (  return phase >= 2 || registeredParties
== 0; )  I see log messages showing that the Phase is advancing

  but I suspect that since the Platform.runLater is a separate thread it
does not execute the task the second and third time.

  Even though this is not strictly Phaser code only I am trying to
understand if any thread co-ordination is required here.



          List<Runnable> tasks = new ArrayList<Runnable>();

          Runnable tsk = new Runnable(){


                          public void run() {

                              Platform.runLater(new Runnable() {

                                  public void run() {

                                      //JavaFX animate works fine the first
time but does not iterate.





          tasks.add( tsk );


          for ( final Runnable task : tasks ) {


            new Thread() {

              public void run() {

                  try {


                  } catch (InterruptedException e) {

                      //Print info.                }

                  do {


                      phaser.arriveAndAwaitAdvance(); //Finish phase

                  } while (!phaser.isTerminated());
