Schedule UIJob in Activator.start() [message #336330] Mon, 08 June 2009 17:48 Go to next message

Hello.

When I shedule an UIJob in the Activator.start() method it is never executed.
I expected that as soon as the Workbench is up it will be executed (I read that somewhere on the forum).
Any suggestions how to make this work, or what the problem could be?
I am using Eclipse 3.5 RC1.

Regards,
Kai

What if you use a org.eclipse.ui.progress.WorkbenchJob?

Hy Paul.

> What if you use a org.eclipse.ui.progress.WorkbenchJob?

No, also does not work.

Here is what I simply do in the start method of my Activator (which extends AbstractUIPlugin):

public void start(BundleContext context) throws Exception {
super.start(context);
plugin = this;

WorkbenchJob job = new WorkbenchJob("Just a UI Job") {

@Override
public IStatus runInUIThread(IProgressMonitor monitor) {
System.out.println("foo bar");
return Status.OK_STATUS;
}
};
job.schedule();
System.out.println("sheduled");
}

Do I miss something?

Regards,
Kai

By the way, here is where I read that this should work:
http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.platform/msg78 318.html
Is it a bug in 3.5? Should I create a bugzilla?

I just checked if this works in 3.4, but it doesn't.
Hm, now I wonder a bit how they get it running in that message I indicated.
