something like "Multi-Threading" yes, like java,nt or unix not. events have to be handled completely, before the next can be processed. but one can trigger new events by timer to run permanently. try boids on esoup and use the gui while the animations continues :) thats very near to real threads, but a lot simpler to synchronize. JBed uses similar threading for its realtime part. its a dr-dobbs-mentioned realtime-java. JBed guis say its a lot easier to predict runtime (higly important for hard realtime).
