    • Method Detail

      • run

        IStatus run​(IProgressMonitor monitor)
        Executes this job. Returns the result of the execution.

        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 Job.ASYNC_FINISH. Jobs that finish asynchronously must specify the execution thread by calling Job.setThread(Thread), and must indicate when they are finished by calling the method Job.done(IStatus).

        Parameters:
        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.
        Returns:
        resulting status of the run. The result must not be null.
