Yes, i did read about Threads and the API doc. Threads provide the only way to effectively handle a number of tasks. But in the above scenario I could see a few places where threads can be used. As I have not used this so far was hoping to get some ideas if it can be used in an effective way in the above mentioned scenario.

Use threads for tasks that block while waiting I/O.
Use threads when you don't want to freeze the GUI
