Is it possible to execute a function thats defined in a shared script in a separate thread from the main thread in Verj IO ?

Hi Segi,

You cannot run a shared script in a separate Thread, but can certainly define a separate thread to run in your script.

Something like this:

Code: Select all

var thread = new java.lang.Thread(
		function () { 
			for(var x =0; x<10; x++)
			{
				log("\nrunning : " + java.lang.Thread.currentThread().getName()); 
				java.lang.Thread.sleep(1000);
			}
		}
	);
	thread.start();
The example above shows how to spawn a new Thread. Note that you override the run() method with a defined function().

I hope this answers your question.

Kind regards

Steve

Steve,

That's exactly what I am trying to do. I have a function in client callable functions that I want to run in a separate thread

When using $eb.executeFunctionAsynchronously doesn't that do the same kind of thing where it runs the function asynchronously by running in a separate thread ?

When you use $eb.executeFunctionAsynchronously(), you're executing the function on the server and it will run in a separate thread anyway, you don't have to do anything to make this happen.

I think we may be at cross purposes here. Could you say a bit more about exactly what you're trying to do.
