I´m new to eclipse e4 and search an API for executing Jobs outside of the Main-Thread, so that the repainting of the GUI is not blocked. Is there anywhere a tutorial, which explains, how to implement a long running job in eclipse?

Jobs themselves shouldn't require the compatibility layer, should they?
They're in org.eclipse.core.jobs. I mean, you can set up jobs by
including their dependencies and perhaps doing setup in your app.
We also include org.eclipse.equinox.concurrent as part of e4.
I'm afraid no. The whole team works on on other stuff so don't expect
any thing in 4.1 unless you really drive it to a point where we can
accept it in 4.1 without any work from ourside.

I'm working on Scheduling Service and Progress Service but its not
complete. I'm concentrating on 3.7 for M3 & M4 and will be resuming this
work after M4.
