Syntax Volatile's Benefit? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    What is the purpose to use syntax volatile in business context? Any concrete example?
    What benefit can you use the syntax volatile?

    "The volatile keyword is a convenience keyword for those who need to access member variables of a class or structure in multi-threaded conditions."
    "The volatile keyword indicates that a field might be modified by multiple threads that are executing at the same time. "

    If you don't use syntax volatile. How would it be then? Chronological order in all thread without taking account to prioritization?

    Thank you!
