Do you work hard for your money? Java professionals think they do, reporting long working hours at their jobs. Java developers from around the world were surveyed about the number….
In order to both improve performance and to reduce complexity, many operating system functions are designed and implemented using threads.
In order to both improve performance and to reduce complexity, many operating system functions are designed and implemented using threads. Essentially, a thread (also known as a lightweight process) is a part of an application that can run autonomously and concurrently with other portions of the application. Operating systems and programming languages generally use either a kernel-level or a user-level approach to threading.
For this Research, you will focus on analyzing the use of different types of threads and evaluating circumstances when a certain type is preferable.
Research an operating system or a programming language and its support for threading.
write an analysis on the operating system/programming language you chose, and its support for threading. Make sure to do the following:
Summarize the threading support.
Answer the following questions:
A. Is the threading model based on kernel-level or user-level threads? What is the most significant advantage of the implementation? What is the most significant disadvantage of the implementation?
B. Provide a scenario where this method of threading will provide the best solution and explain why.
