    Is it true that you schouldnt create more then 16 Threads out of one Process?

    >>> more then 16 Threads out of one Process

    Complete and utter nonsense. I suppose there must be a limit, but my Apache web server for example currently spins 250 socket threads at startup, with a few others for different purposes. My last application used between 70 and 90 threads at a time.

    Ask him/her to justify the statement.
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.

    i guess that the amount of threads is limited by the number of Available Handles
