12. Concurrency

Chapter 12. Concurrency

Concurrency in any application has the potential to provide a seemingly unending source of intractable problems. In the realm of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services, concurrency relates to the ability for a service to handle multiple incoming messages simultaneously. The ability to do this correctly can mean the difference between a robust and scalable application and one that crashes for no apparent reason or becomes unresponsive when placed under a high load. This chapter discusses not only the concepts associated with concurrent programming but also how they can be addressed in WCF services and clients.

Exam objectives in this chapter:

  • Manage concurrency.
