Streaming aside (because I've no idea about what that involves), but just in case you weren't aware..... In Java 5 you can create FutureTask's which implement "Callable" (like Runnable but allows a parameterized return type) which you can give to a fixed size thread pool ExecutorService... you can maintain the order in an ordered collection, and then just call get() on each one in turn to construct the output in the right order. The ExecutorService takes care of managing the thread pool, Callable allows a return type so you don't have to mess around there, and get() blocks until complete so again you don't have to worry about managing that. Hopefully thats helpful, cheers -- Andrew Welch http://andrewjwelch.com Kernow: http://kernowforsaxon.sf.net/
