    Default how to run parallel processes ?

    My use case is to split a huge gz file into multiple files and then run another java code in parallel on these multiple files and exit the main program when these all child programs finish.

    My question is
    how can I do it in java ?:
    i) what is best way to split a huge file (20-30 GB) into smaller chunks ?
    ii) what is best way to run lot of parallel processes from a java program, where all processes do the same thing and main process should exit when these processes finish.
    iii) Also, is it possible for main program to get exception if any of the child fails and it can re-submit this child again after correcting error condition .

    This is probably going to be quite challenging if you are not fairly experienced with java. But I would imagine you are looking for threads to run multiple processes, unfortunately, there is not much else I can add.

    ii) See Lesson: Concurrency (The Java™ Tutorials > Essential Classes) for how to create threads, which will allow you to do things in parallel.
    i)As for 'the best way' of splitting a file, this depends upon what you wish to split on (delim, regex, etc...?)
    iii) Create a listener (or many listeners) that are called upon when something bad happens.

    None of the above is extremely trivial for a newcomer to the language (you don't mention your experience so I'm throwing this out there just in case)
