TDatabase component generating error in thread

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now I have your attention :)

I've got a thread which runs simultaneously with my main app.  The thread processes jobs which are passed to it.  I've got a REAL problem tho, and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

I've been told that each thread requires it's own TDatabase.  No worries, I'll stick on in.  Here's what I do:

constructor TReportThread.CreateThread(CreateSuspended: Boolean; Alias, Params: String);
begin
  Inherited Create(CreateSuspended);

  FreeOnTerminate := true;

  ADatabase := TDatabase.Create(nil);
  ASession := TSession.Create(nil);
  ASession.AutoSessionName := true;
  ASession.Active := true;
  ADatabase.SessionName := ASession.SessionName;
  ADatabase.AliasName := Alias;
  ADatabase.DatabaseName := 'PMREPTHREADDM';
  ADatabase.Params.Text := Params;
  ADatabase.LoginPrompt := false;
  ADatabase.Open;
end;

When the thread is created, I can trace through the code until the database is opened.

ADatabase and ASession are declared in the Private section of the class and are freed when the thread is terminated.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ta!

Hi SJohnson,

what is the value for CreateSuspended passed as parameter?
If your thread not suspended then execute started immediate after constructor called. In this case databse can be not initialized before some action in execute method will refer to it. Better would be to move database and session initialization code inside execute method.

Hi Igor,

I create the thread unsuspended.  And then after the constructor, change it to suspend = true.  Is this OK, or should I started it suspened?

Thanks for the info.

I think each thread requires it's own TSession and try to make ASession.AutoSessionName := False and create your own session name for each thread.

Hi Adeng,

From the Delphi 5 help: "Set AutoSessionName to control whether or not a unique session name is automatically generated. AutoSessionName is intended to guarantee developers of multi-threaded applications that sessions spawned for each thread are unique at runtime. "

Cheers!

Hi Stuart,

did you try to move initializtion code to execute method? The deal is that Create method executed in main VCL thread.

PS: it's not good idea to use two logins :-)

Hi Igor,

No it didn't work :(  Everything goes OK until it reaches the Datebase.Open line and then the execute method is exitted with no exception.  If I do this:

try
  ADatabase.Open;
except
  on E: Exception do
    ShowMessage(E.Message)
end;

no error is displayed.  The application stops responding.

What do you mean by it's not a good idea to use two logins? Do you mean two different login IDs?  If so, I'm only using the one that's used to log into the actual application.

Thanks for you help,

Stu.

Hi Stuart,

I will try to explore my HDD to find examples of DB threading. Seems it is at home. On success, I will public it here.

Hi Igor,

I've done this the only way I know how and the only way which works.  I use the TDatabase component from the main application.  So far I've had absolutely no problems what so ever.  I know this probably isn't right, but I've had no other choice as I had to get this part of the app working.  If you can tell me how it works, I'll be more than happy to change what I've done.

As for the two logins, it's cool for me to have the two of them.  See here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=delphi&qid=20148878
