Multithreaded applications are a must today.The Dot Net Framework makes creating these applications much easier than traditional programming methods. Be sure to take advantage of multithreading and of all available methods of synchronization.
When designing for multithreaded applications remember the age-old proverb: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It is much easier to prevent deadlocks and other multithreaded bugs by taking a few extra minutes and trying to prevent them. You will usually spend a lot of time trying to find the cause of these bugs when reported from the field, as they don’t usually show up stepping through code, but only when running at full speed.
