Use multi thread when calling MSDN webservices?

Jul 16, 2007 at 6:54 AM
I'm generating the document for a windows application. It'll be very slow because I set to use MSDN for SdkDocumentLink. Can we consider to use multi thread to improve the speed?

And I noticed if there is a failed web service call, for example the connection is timeout, the description for other methods/properties will be ignored. Can we have a setting to let it try more?

Please post your request in the MSDN documentation forum as that component is written by Microsoft. However, I doubt multi-threading would do anything in this case if they're all blocking waiting for a response from the web service, there's no net gain in performance. A better option would be to cache the responses across runs and have an option to refresh them if you feel they aren't valid.
