What Happens If Two Dart Asynchronous Functions Try To Add To The Same List Concurrently?
Does dart handle the case in which two different calls of an asynchronous function try to add two (or more) objects to a List at the same time? If it does not is there a way for me to handle this?
I do not need those two new objects to be inserted in a particular order because I take care of that later on, I only wandered what happens in that unlikely but still possible case
If you're wondering if there's any kind of locking necessary to prevent race conditions in the
List data structure itself, no. As pskink noted in a comment, each Dart isolate runs in its own thread, and as the "isolate" name implies, memory is not shared. Two operations therefore cannot both be actively updating a
List at the same time. Once all asynchronous operations complete, your
List will contain all of the added items but not with any guaranteed ordering.
