Abstract: A method for coordinating phases of program execution within a data processing system. One or more program defined synchronization events are established. Each synchronization event is responded to by one or more programs to coordinate phases of execution. The operating system notifies the one or more programs when all responses are received. A next program defined synchronization event may be established after a response is received for a previous synchronization event.
