AtomicReference setRelease() method in Java with Examples

The setRelease() method of a AtomicReference class is used to set the value of this AtomicReference object with memory effects as specified by VarHandle.setRelease(java.lang.Object…). This method has memory ordering effects compatible with memory_order_release ordering.

Syntax:

public final void setRelease(V newValue)

Parameters: This method accepts newValue which is the new value to set.

Return value: This method returns nothing.
