Thank you Oliver, but what I need is a thread pool with a limited queue and non-blocking task submission mechanism. The queue size may be changed at runtime, but there is always a maximum. If the queue is full, the submission must fail instead of waiting.
I had not seen tasklet library before, I see now the refactoring you are talking about. Please consider adding a bounded non-blocking queue for using with the thread pool. If you need anything I'll be glad to help. I'll probably use the current task library version anyway.
