Compared to no threading at all, or compared to pre-emptive multi-threading?
I think it can be more work to set them up, but they tend to me more robust
because a) you have to think about how threading is going to affect your
app, b) they're far easier to debug should things go awry, and c) they can
help you avoid deadlocks and race conditions because you don't have critical
sections to deal with as you would in a pre-emptive system.
I'm not a Java guy, so I can't speak to its multi-threading design and how
it make hinder or help.
