I have knowledge that AtomicInteger and other Atomic variables allow concurrent accesses. In what cases is this class typically used though?

There are two main uses of AtomicInteger:

  • As an atomic counter (incrementAndGet()) that can be used by many threads concurrently

  • As a primitive that supports compare-and-swap instruction (compareAndSet()) to implement non-blocking algorithms.
