Type: Specification State: draft

Umbrella specification regarding when to use which thread related construct in Uno implementations.


  • When implementing fast APIs, use threads for accessing slow APIs. Do notify about completion asynchronously.
  • Be conservative, only program thread related / aware where necessary.
  • Implement public libraries APIs etc. as wide as the parameters (e.g. always return appropriate purpose objects in case of OBI specialization)
  • Implement public APIs thread-transparent.
  • Only program thread-safe, if parallelism is required (e.g. for interrupting a method call).
  • Encapsulate thread-affinity.
  • Enable concurrent access to inter-thread objects (avoiding bottlenecks).
