This thesis presents a language extension for Java that ensures that type-checked programs will be free of race conditions. By adding parameterization to class types, this mostly static type-system allows programmers to write generic object code independent of the concurrency protection mechanism to be used to guard it. This added flexibility makes this extension more expressive and easier to use than other similar type systems. We will present the formal type system as well as our experience with implementing a compiler for this extension.
