IThreadAware Interface

Interface implemented by objects that are aware of concurrency. Access to thread-aware objects is controlled by a concurrency controller (IConcurrencyController). Any aspect implementing a threading model (ThreadAwareObjectAttribute) introduces this interface to the target class and ensures that accesses to this class go through the controller.

Public Extension MethodAcquireAccess(ObjectAccessLevel, ConcurrentAccessToken)Overloaded.
Acquires access for a given object and gets the ConcurrentAccessToken as a reference parameter.
(Defined by ThreadAwareExtensions.)
Public Extension MethodAcquireAccessAsync
Asynchronously acquires access for a given object.
