What is Thread.Join() in threading ?

Posted By :Shashi Ray     Posted Date :March 19, 2009    Points :10   Category :ADO.Net 
There are two versions of Thread.Join :-
. Thread.join().
. Thread.join(Integer) this returns a Boolean value.
The Thread.Join method is useful for determining if a thread has completed before starting another task. The Join method waits a specified amount of time for a thread to end. If the thread ends before the time-out, Join returns true; otherwise it returns False. Once you call Join, the calling procedure stops and waits for the thread to signal that it is done.
Example you have "Thread1" and "Thread2" and while executing 'Thread1" you call "Thread2.Join()".So "Thread1" will wait until "Thread2" has completed its execution and the again invoke "Thread1".
Thread.Join(Integer) ensures that threads do not wait for a long time. If it exceeds a specific time which is provided in integer the waiting thread will start.

What's Thread.Sleep() in threading ?

  
Thread's execution can be caused by calling the Thread.Sleep method. This method takes an integer value that determines how long the thread should sleep. Example Thread.CurrentThread.Sleep(2000). (More...)

What's Thread.Sleep() in threading ?

  
Thread's execution can be paused by calling the Thread.Sleep method. This method takes
an integer value that determines how long the thread should sleep. Example
Thread.CurrentThread.Sleep(2000).
it will paused for 2 second. (More...)

what do you mean by Thread.Sleep() in threading ?

  
Thread's execution can be paused by calling the Thread.Sleep method. This method takes an integer value that determines how long the thread should sleep. Eg:Thread.CurrentThread.Sleep(100). (More...)

What are the types of threading models?

  
. Single Threading: This is the simplest and most common threading
model where a single thread corresponds to your entire application's
process.
Apartment Threading (STA): This allows multiple threads to exist in a
single application. In single threading apartment (STA), each thread
is isolated in it's own apartment. The process may contain multiple
threads (apartments) however when an object is created in a
thread (i.e. apartment) it stays within that
apartment. If any communication needs to occur between different
threads (i.e. different apartments) then we must marshal the first
thread object to the second thread.
Free Threading: The most complex threading model. Unlike STA,
threads are not confined to their own apartments. Multiple treads can
make calls to the same methods and same components at the
same time. (More...)

What is Multi-threading ?

  
Multi-threading forms subset of Multi-tasking. Instead of having to switch between programs this feature switches between different parts of the same program. Example you are writing in word and at the same time word is doing a spell check in background. (More...)

What is a Thread ?

  
A thread is the basic unit to which the operating system allocates processor time. (More...)

How can you reference current thread of the method ?

  
"Thread.CurrentThread" refers to the current thread running in the method."CurrentThread" is a public static property. (More...)

How can we make a thread sleep for infinite period?

  
You can also place a thread into the sleep state for an indeterminate amount of time by calling Thread.Sleep (System.Threading.Timeout.Infinite). To interrupt this sleep you can call the Thread.Interrupt method. (More...)

What is Suspend and Resume in Threading ?

  
It is Similar to Sleep and Interrupt. Suspend allows you to block a thread until another thread calls Thread.Resume. The difference between Sleep and Suspend is that the latter does not immediately place a thread in the wait state. The thread does not suspend until the .NET runtime determines that it is in a safe place to suspend it. Sleep will immediately place a thread in a wait state.
Note :- In threading interviews most people get confused with Sleep and Suspend. They look very similar. (More...)

What the way to stop a long running thread ?

  
Thread.Abort() stops the thread execution at that moment itself. (More...)

What is multi-threading?

  
It is basically trying to do more than one thing at a time within a process.
There are two main ways of multi-threading which .NET encourages: starting your own threads with ThreadStart delegates, and using the ThreadPool class either directly (using ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem) or indirectly using asynchronous methods (such as Stream.BeginRead, or calling BeginInvoke on any delegate). (More...)

What is the difference between thread and process?

  
Thread - is used to execute more than one program at a time.
process - executes single program.
A thread is a path of execution that run on CPU, a process is a collection of threads that share the same virtual memory. A process has at least one thread of execution, and a thread always run in a process context. (More...)

How do I invite users to join a Windows SharePoint Services Site? Is the site secure?

  
SharePoint-based Web sites can be password-protected to restrict access to registered users, who are invited to join via e-mail. In addition, the site administrator can restrict certain members' roles by assigning different permission levels to view post and edit. (More...)
