Hi,
there is currently no UI for displaying the progress of Jobs in Eclipse
4. However, using a ProgressProvider, it would be very simple to create
a custom UI. The question is, whether the core jobs API including the
JobManager is likely to remain unchanged. Has somebody looked more in
detail into this? The JobManager is currently a singleton, which can be
accessed with Job.getJobManager(). If you inject IJobManager, you will
get a different object.

Some time ago, somebody was writing about an Eclipse 4 UI for Jobs,
which he was preparing. What is the state of that.

Cheers
Jonas

AFAIK the jobs API is being left as is for now.

There was ssome progress, but then it was shelved while Kepler wrapped
up. I know that providing an Eclipse4 Progress view (without the
workbench) will be in the Luna (4.4) plan

Later,
