  • Method Details

    • run

      protected IStatus run(IProgressMonitor monitor)
      Description copied from class: Job
      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 setThread, and must indicate when they are finished by calling the method done.

      Specified by:
      run in class Job
      monitor - the monitor to be used for reporting progress and responding to cancelation. The monitor is never null
      resulting status of the run. The result must not be null

    • shouldRun

      public boolean shouldRun()
      Description copied from class: Job
      Returns whether this job should be run. If false is returned, this job will be discarded by the job manager without running.

      This method is called immediately prior to calling the job's run method, so it can be used for last minute precondition checking before a job is run. This method must not attempt to schedule or change the state of any other job.

      Clients may override this method. This default implementation always returns true.

      shouldRun in class Job
      true if this job should be run and false otherwise
