IStatus run(IProgressMonitor monitor)
The provided monitor can be used to report progress and respond to
cancellation. If the progress monitor has been canceled, the job should
finish its execution at the earliest convenience and return a result
status of severity
IStatus.CANCEL. The singleton cancel status
Status.CANCEL_STATUS can be used for this purpose. The monitor is
only valid for the duration of the invocation of this method.
This method must not be called directly by clients. Clients should call
schedule, which will in turn cause this method to be called.
Jobs can optionally finish their execution asynchronously (in another
thread) by returning a result status of
that finish asynchronously must specify the execution thread by
Job.setThread(Thread), and must indicate when they are
finished by calling the method
monitor- the monitor to be used for reporting progress and responding to cancellation. The monitor is never
null. It is the caller's responsibility to call
IProgressMonitor.done()after this method returns or throws an exception.
