Eclipse Jobs API using thread pools? [message #882942] Thu, 07 June 2012 14:01

hello,

is Eclipse 3.0 Jobs API using any internal thread pool for executing jobs?
or is it creating a new thread each time a job is scheduled (about to be started)?

if it doesn't use any thread pooling, is it somehow possible to use Jobs with Java's ExecutorService so that scheduled jobs will reuse existing threads from the Executor's pool?

if not then last question, is there a chance to provide progress feedback in the Eclipse progress view (as I'd do with Jobs IProgressMonitor) but from within a regular Java Thread?

I really like the features Jobs API provides (especially progress monitoring and cancellation) but I'm a bit concerned about the overhead it may introduce to the main UI thread if it doesn't use thread pooling and the jobs are scheduled really often.

thanks in advance!

regards,
jb.
