Table of Contents

Build faster, more responsive NT applications with multithreading!
Multithreaded Programming with Win32, Complete coverage of the Win32 Thread Interface
Covers the latest Win32 interfaces, APIs, and DCOM programming model
Thread management, creation, termination, synchronization, prioritization, and more!
Improve robustness with advanced deadlock prevention and recovery techniques
Make the most of Java threads
Create multithreaded distributed applications with DCOM
If you want to deliver NT applications with maximum performance, efficiency and robustness, you need to master multithreading
Multithreaded Programming with Win32 brings together every Win32 multithreading technique and concept you must know-all brilliantly explained with practical examples and sample code
Start by learning how multithreading works, and the fundamentals of the Win32 Thread Interface, including processes, thread management, creation, termination, and prioritization
Next, review key Win32 techniques for thread synchronization
Understand the role of monitors and data encapsulation
Then, use Microsoft's deadlock detection, prevention, and recovery techniques to maximize the robustness of your multithreaded applications
Master the thread-package architecture and implementations, including user-level, kernel-level, and multiplexed threads, as well as the scheduler
Even learn how to use DCOM to implement multithreading in distributed software
No matter what NT applications you develop-desktop, client/server, distributed, or Web-based-this book will help you supercharge them!
