Stoppable Thread Class Version 1.0
STATUS KEY : Specification Design and Architecture Development and Testing Complete
Provides the infrastructure to safely implement stoppable threads.
FunctionalityThe Stoppable Thread Component provides the infrastructure to safely implement stoppable threads. The component takes into account interaction with the I/O subsystem to either properly interrupt those operations or wait until they have successfully completed.
Defining a Stoppable Thread component that safely enables a thread to be stopped can be used in any number of applications. For example, a web server typically uses multiple threads to manage incoming requests. Some of these requests may process functionality such as file uploading. Employing a stoppable thread will enable the safe stoppage of one of these threads without corrupting a file that has been uploaded by killing the file write process before the full file is written.
