Lab Assignment 3: Multiple Readers
Currently Version 3 limits access to a
particular message folder to one client at a time
(although multiple clients can
simulataneously access different folders).
Change version 3 by incorporating a
solution to the multiple readers/single writer problem.
- Propose a solution to this problem
given the limited implementation in version 3 (e.g. no
editing of messages)
- Favor a solution which allows
maximum read access
- Never sacrifice the integrity of
the message folder.
- Don't worry much about the user
interface, focus on synchronization issues.
- Submit your implementation
solution (including a makefile).
