Interface AsyncGUIJob


public interface AsyncGUIJob

Service provider interface (SPI) for executing of time consuming task which results are visible in UI. Typical usage is post-initialization of UI components or various long lasting operations like network accessing invoked directly or indirectly by user from UI. Note that it's often desirable to provide cancel support, at least for longer lasting jobs. See Cancellable support. Keep in mind that methods construct() and Cancellable.cancel() can be called concurrently and require proper synchronization as such.
