Hi UD,

Nope.  The hardware protect the memory of one task from poking and prodding by other tasks.

Now if an application is multi-threaded, certainly all of the threads will share all of the tasks memory.  But separate memory is more or less the definition of a separate task.

You can set up shared memory between the tasks and create objects in the shared region.  That will protect the tasks from each other while allowing them to share data as common memory.

Good Luck,
Kent
