In Java 5, a new set of classes related to concurrency was added to the Java API, mostly authored by the famous Doug Lea. These include the ExecutorService (Java Doc) and the Future (Java Doc) classes to name a few, all part of the concurrency framework which was introduced in the same version of Java (Concurrency Utilities Overview). This article describes a problem related with stopping a group or Future in time. It first shows the problem and then proposes a simple solution.
