I need to implement a thread which communicates to the external server using TCP/IP and update the received data to the view.
Is it possible to implement threads in a Eclipse custom plug-in? if so how to implement them. Requesting for some samples!!!
In Eclipse asynchronous tasks are performed in jobs. They allow you to easily communicates between the main thread (UI thread) and other tasks. You can find more about Jobs and Threads in Eclipse in this article. Jobs also allow to easily reports progress in various part of Eclipse (inside a wizard page, in the Progress view, at the bottom of Eclipse or even in a dialog).
