WD21 - ParallelTasks, are they reliable

Startbeitrag von Arie am 22.03.2017 15:50


I need to run a number of background task on a server, like importing csv data, send emails, etc.
Some of the task can run quite long. In the mean time other task have to run as well. The long running task must not block others form running. Also, for some tasks, I need a sequence. Where one task can only run if another has finished.

Sounds perfect for the the ParallelTask feature of Windev. it looks like it has all the option I need.

But since this is new since WD20 I wonder if anyone is using it and more important: does it work 100% bugfree now?


Hi Arie,

We use ParallelTask and it works well. It goes fast and is fairly easy to implement (if you know enough about threads and their picky behavior).

But (there is always one) we have a complex software and we do many weird things and we push WD to its limits all the time. I must say that while developing I’ve seen some freaky super low level errors popping up from time to time, with no reasons. But I never saw issues (yet) with customers with the compiled EXE. But there is not enough statistics yet for me to tell you there are no issues for sure.

Best regards,
Alexandre Leclerc
