  abstract= "Java provides support for concurrent and parallel
     programming throughthreads, monitors and its socket and
     Remote Method Invocation (RMI) classes.However, there have
     been many concerns expressed about the way in which
     thissupport is provided, e.g., [1][2], citing problems such
     as improper implementation ofmonitors and difficulty of
     programming with threads. Hoareā€™s CommunicatingSequential
     Processes (CSP) [3][4][5] model fully specifies thread
     synchronizationand is based on processes, compositions, and
     channel communication. It provides amathematical notation
     for describing patterns of communication using
     algebraicexpressions and contains formal proofs for
     analyzing, verifying and eliminatingundesirable conditions,
     such as race hazards, deadlocks, livelock, and
     starvation.Two independent research efforts provide a CSP
     based process-oriented designpattern for concurrency
     implemented in Java: Communicating Sequential Processesfor
     Java (JCSP) [6] and Communication Threads in Java (CTJ) [7].
     In this paper, wecompare these two packages, looking at the
     philosophy behind their development,their similarities,
     their differences, their performance, and their use."
