I think the basic guide-line should be:
1) If you need to interact with the UI, use asyncExec
2) If your work has considerable parts that are UI-independent, use
a job for this. You will run in problematic situations, when
you have several dependent work units of the form
UI -> non-UI -> UI -> non-UI ->...
etc. If possible, try to isolate UI and non-UI work-units in as large
blocks as possible to prevent the overhead of an unnecessary high
number of context switching.
UIJob is somewhat in-between. I use it only, if I need to.
