|Welcome to multithreaded heaven! Is Threads running now? Check here.||Sample Application|
Delphi ... the higher, the better!
All Windows platforms
Threads: Multithreaded Application Model.
I downloaded many multithreaded applications from various sites. None of them was reliable as I wished. I read lots of stuff about race conditions, deadlocks, how can threads corrupt data or starve. I didn't find an entire application (source code) which will implement good protection and threads synchronization, database access, etc. This is a project that started back in the year 2000.
This is what I tried to accomplish in this application: a model which can be used to start many other multithreaded apps. If you need badly to see some multithreaded code, Threads is for you. If you are in a hurry to deliver a multithread application, here you go; get Threads and I believe in shortest time you will come up with your problem solved. How can you use this stuff? In two ways: learning and/or adding your own code to it. What the sources will give you:
* This feature is available in the 32 bits executable edition. If you register the code and if you have the latest DBISAM, ElevateDB and ReportBuilder, FastReport upgrades which can work on 64-bits Windows than Threads can be fully compiled under 64 bit with all features enabled.

Or even better: take a look at my other applications, based
entirely on my own threading engine. Take a look at
EZ News Reader (jpg 138KB - however, since I'm not in the business of
writing a news reader, this project is dead. There are too many newsreaders
out there already). Or the Printer Usage Monitor
The application: setup (4 MB) 2015.12.27. The demo is 32 bits and compiled with Delphi 10 Seattle.
( p.s. I like Martin Harvey's thread tutorial. )
Version 7 is available for download! This new edition compiles in both 32/64 bits flavors. Threads 7 will only be supported for Delphi XE2 or higher. Stuff that won't compile lower (reference procs/funcs) can be downgraded, I suppose pretty easy, but I am too busy to keep up with that.
Tested under Windows 10. Existing users: this won't be a free upgrade unless you bought Threads starting with year 2012. Upgrade by request only (as usual).
