Somewhere I read something along the lines of

> sharing, mutation, concurrency – pick any two

which is a marvellous little snippet of wisdom.

Since Google cannot find it I am claiming it for myself until the rightful owner steps forward.

  1. What do you mean by sharing? I would assume it means sharing between multiple threads. In which case if you don’t have concurrency then you don’t have sharing. Or have I misunderstood?

  2. if you don’t have concurrency then you don’t have sharing

    That’s true . You still end up with the same number of valid combinations though; feel free to abbreviate “sharing + mutation + no concurreny” to “mutation + no concurrency” ;)
