I just wanted to ask, whether a new thread ist necessary for updating a glazed lists object within an event handler for changing the data of a NatTable object, when we are talking about good programming:

this.btnSearch.addSelectionListener(new SelectionAdapter() {
	public void widgetSelected(SelectionEvent e) {
		Thread operationThread = new Thread() {
			public void run() {
				// time-consuming operations
				// Get requested data from Application Server
				display.syncExec(new Runnable() {
					public void run() {
						// UI Updating procedures go here ...


Thank you very much!

A new thread would be necessary when the updating of the GlazedLists causes effects on the UI. For GlazedLists itself it is therefore not necessary. But for updating the NatTable it is.

In NatTable you should use the GlazedListsEventLayer to automatically react on such changes. And IIRC that layer already takes care of the UI thread execution. So it should not be necessary in your case.
