Hi. Just wanted to know if there will still be a separate chapter on scheduling or if it is going to be incorporated into one of the other chapters in the future. I noticed it isn't in the TOC anymore, but on page 236 of the V7 MEAP, you still mention that it will be covered later in the book. If it's not going to be covered in later chapters, perhaps expanding on the subject right on page 236 would be helpful already. Thanks.

Hi!

Thanks for your comment. We decided, after much deliberation, to roll the chapter about scheduling into chapter 9 (Testing) since this is where most readers will encounter scheduling in practice. Schedulers are largely invisible for 99% of the use cases that readers will likely encounter, so it made sense in this case to leave it out of an "*-in-Action" book.

That makes a lot of sense. Thanks again for clarifying. Looking forward to the rest of the book smilie
