For any GUI application using Qt, there is precisely *one* QApplication
object, no matter whether the application has 0, 1, 2 or more windows at any
given time ( the same holds true for threads as well).

You must also realize that there is a difference between a thread and a
child process.

For multi threading, i will recommend you first read this excellent article:

the worker threads can exchange data via signals and slots...if they are
accessing common data structures you will need synchronization primitives
like QMutex, wait conditions etc.
