Spring boot uses thread pool to realize asynchronous processing without return and asynchronous processing with return

1. Scene

HTTP requests are processed asynchronously;

1) No need to return, such as sending SMS, push messages, e-mail and other ancillary services, asynchronous processing, reduce the total time consumption of HTTP requests, improve customer experience.

2) If you need to return, the front-end will wait for the business processing result data, and the asynchronous processing will return to the main thread of HTTP request, and return to the front-end; if it is a single business that can be optimized here, please check the previous and next articles in this blog; if it is multiple business processing, you can use multiple asynchronous processing with return, and the total weight will summarize the result and return.

2. Knowledge points

1) Thread pool threadpooltaskexecutor

2) Note: @ enableasync, @ async (“asyncserviceexecutor”)

3) Return value encapsulates future & lt; T & gt;, new asyncresult & lt; & gt; (T)

import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMethod;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController;

import java.util.concurrent.Future;

public class AsyncCtr {

    private TaskService taskService;

    @RequestMapping(value = "/get", method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public Responses<String> getResult() throws Exception {

        log.info("HTTP request received...") ;
        long startTime = System.currentTimeMillis();

        //1. Asynchronous execution_processing_data_without_waiting

        //2. Asynchronous execution_processing_data_waiting_for_processing_results

        log.info("Total time spent on http request. " + (endTime - startTime) + "ms");

        return new Responses<>(0, result, "SUCCESS");




package com.liuxd.service;

import lombok.extern.slf4j.Slf4j;
import org.springframework.scheduling.annotation.Async;
import org.springframework.scheduling.annotation.AsyncResult;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Service;

import java.util.concurrent.Future;

        long endTime = System.currentTimeMillis();
        log.info("Total time taken to call service without return asynchronous method. " + (endTime - startTime) + "ms");


    public Future<String> getData(){

        log.info("Call service has return asynchronous method, start execution...");
        long startTime = System.currentTimeMillis();

        try {

3) Thread pool

package com.liuxd.config;

import org.springframework.context.annotation.Bean;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Configuration;
import org.springframework.scheduling.annotation.EnableAsync;
import org.springframework.scheduling.concurrent.ThreadPoolTaskExecutor;

import java.util.concurrent.Executor;
import java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor;

 * @program: unif-insure-service
 * @description: Thread Pool
public class ExecutorConfig {
    public Executor asyncServiceExecutor() {
        ThreadPoolTaskExecutor executor = new ThreadPoolTaskExecutor();
        //Configure the number of core threads
        // Configure the maximum number of threads
        //configure queue size
        //configure the name prefix of the threads in the thread pool

        // rejection-policy: How to handle new tasks when the pool has reached its max size
        // CALLER_RUNS: instead of executing the task in the new thread, the caller's thread will execute it
        executor.setRejectedExecutionHandler(new ThreadPoolExecutor.CallerRunsPolicy());
        //Execution initialization
        return executor;


package com.liuxd.entity;

import lombok.AllArgsConstructor;
import lombok.Builder;
import lombok.Data;
import lombok.NoArgsConstructor;

public class Responses<T> {

    private Integer code;

    private String msg;

    private T data;


5) Print results

6) Result analysis

1) There are three threads, HTTP request main thread, asynchronous no return thread, asynchronous return thread

2) The main thread does not need to wait for no return thread, it will wait for the result of return thread, and finally return
