CNonStatelessWorker Class

Receives requests from a thread pool and passes them on to a worker object that is created and destroyed on each request.

template <
   class Worker
class CNonStatelessWorker


A worker thread class conforming to the worker archetype suitable for handling requests queued on CThreadPool.

This class is a simple worker thread for use with CThreadPool. This class doesn't provide any request-handling capabilities of its own. Instead, it instantiates one instance of Worker per request and delegates the implementation of its methods to that instance.

The benefit of this class is that it provides a convenient way to change the state model for existing worker thread classes. CThreadPool will create a single worker for the lifetime of the thread, so if the worker class holds state, it will hold it across multiple requests. By simply wrapping that class in the CNonStatelessWorker template before using it with CThreadPool, the lifetime of the worker and the state it holds is limited to a single request.
