Detailed Description

template<class T>
class TAO_ESF_RefCount_Guard< T >

Reference count based guard.

A common idiom used on event services is to increment a reference count before starting a long running operation. The system can then execute the operation without any risk of having the underlying object destroyed. The advantage of using a reference count is that no mutex or lock needs to be held while the operation is beign executed.
