I'm currently trying to implement a long running job with a progress view in an e4 application. I tried it the way it worked for me in eclipse 3.x but this seems to not working anymore because the workbench does not exist anymore. I searched a lot of time but all i found for e4 development were ideas how it could be done in the future. Is there a way to implement long running jobs? Is there an working API for it?
As addition, i don't want to use the compatibitility layer.

Right now there's no Progress Service in the Eclipse 4 world. You either have to implement your own org.eclipse.core.runtime.jobs.ProgressProvider for jobs, and use some of the components from org.eclipse.jface.dialogs or simply use org.eclipse.jface.dialogs.ProgressMonitorDialog directly.
