March Dublin C++ User Group Presentation

March 6, 2018 1 comment

On Monday this week I did a presentation on using OpenStreetMap and various Microsoft technologies to the Dublin C++ User Group in Dublin. It provided an introduction to OpenStreetMap the project and then went through my OSMCtrl application which demoed a number of Microsoft Technologies such as Direct2D, Windows Animations, Windows Sensors, MFC and using WinHTTP to make web services calls. A big thanks to Mihai Todor and the fellow organisers who faciliated the meetup. The PowerPoint deck of my presentation is available here for those interested. A recording of the meetup should be available on the groups meetup page shortly.

ThreadPoolWrappers v1.0

March 4, 2018 Comments off

Included in my W3MFC download is a custom thread pool implementation which I wrote many years ago, but since Windows Vista, Microsoft have implemented a new Thread Pool API which I have always wanted to take a look at. This download provides a complete C++ wrapper for the various components of the Thread Pool API. It is based in part on the Kenny Kerr articles on the MSDN magazine about the thread pool from August to December 2011 (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-ca/magazine/hh335066.aspx, https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/hh394144.aspx, https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/hh456398.aspx, https://msdn.microsoft.com/magazine/hh547107.aspx & https://msdn.microsoft.com/magazine/hh580731.aspx). These wrapper classes also provide an implementation of the Thread Pool sample as provided on the blog post article at http://www.dorodnic.com/blog/2015/10/17/windows-threadpool.

The classes provided are: ThreadPoolWrappers::CCleanupGroup, ThreadPoolWrappers::CEnvironment, ThreadPoolWrappers::CIO, ThreadPoolWrappers::CPool, ThreadPoolWrappers::CThreadPool, ThreadPoolWrappers::CTimer, ThreadPoolWrappers::CWait & ThreadPoolWrappers::CWork.

CCleanupGroup provides a class based encapsulation of a Thread Pool cleanup group as represented by a PTP_CLEANUP_GROUP.

CEnvironment provides a class based encapsulation of a Thread Pool TP_CALLBACK_ENVIRON structure.

CIO provides a class based encapsulation of a Thread Pool IO callback as represented by a PTP_IO.

CPool provides a class based encapsulation of a Thread Pool pool as represented by a PTP_POOL.

CThreadPool provides a implementation of a thread pool based on the blog post article at http://www.dorodnic.com/blog/2015/10/17/windows-threadpool. It works with the default process thread pool or an explicit thread pool and provides cleanup via CEnvironment and CCleanupGroup member variables.

CTimer provides a class based encapsulation of a Thread Pool timer callback as represented by a PTP_TIMER.

CWait provides a class based encapsulation of a Thread Pool wait callback as represented by a PTP_WAIT.

CWork provides a class based encapsulation of a Thread Pool work callback as represented by a PTP_WORK.

Features

  • Provides a complete RAII wrapper for the Windows Thread Pool.
  • All the code is provided in a single C++ Header only module of "ThreadPoolWrappers.h" .
  • All the code clean compiles at warning level 4, is /analyze and /permissive- clean and includes ASCII, Unicode, x86 and x64 built configurations.
  • The classes have been tested only on VC 2017 but should be compilable on earlier versions of Visual C++.
  • The CIO, CTimer, CWait & CWork classes provide optional RAII cleanup via an bAutoRelease parameter. This is modeled on the MFC COleDispatchDriver class and means that the classes can be used in conjunction with the default process thread pool and thread pools created using a cleanup group e.g. ThreadPoolWrappers::CThreadPool
