View Full Version : Are QHttp n QHttpRequestHeader thread safe?

I am using Qt 4.1 and want to post to server from the threads. Is this possible?

Sure. Mt requirement here is to simulate an environment where 'n' end systems are simultaneuosly posting x requests each, to a server.

I have a class, Http, which implements sending x requests to the server as follows using the QHttp n QHttpRequestHeader.

The constructor of this class has

QHttp op=new QHttp();

while a function info() of the same class, implements

QHttpRequestHeader header( "POST", "server.php" ) ;
header.setValue( "Host", "" ) ;
header.setContentType( "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" ) ;

I tested this and it is working perfectly.Now in order to get n systems doing this simultaneously, I am using a class inherited from QThread. I have reimplemented run() to create a Http object and call info().

In the main(), i have

QList <MyThread *> list;
for(int i=0;i<noOfThreads;i++)
MyThread *t = new MyThread(noOfLogs);
QObject::connect(t, SIGNAL(finished()),t, SLOT(deleteLater()));

This does not work, not a single request is sent. However if i call run() instead of start(), it works. But i guess, i should not be calling run() as then each thread will be created one after the other i the loop, which beats simultaneous requirement.

I however tried

QObject::connect(t, SIGNAL(finished()),t, SLOT(CallRun()));
Then the exe, works with a call to start().

Can you point where i am probably going wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Can you show us run()? You may need to start an event loop (http://doc.trolltech.com/4.1/qthread.html#exec) in every thread.

Hm maiby available some errors in declaring MyThread?Show your *.h file pls.
What will happen if you start only one thread without cycle? Have your run() is exceuting?
