Class ExecutionList

  • @GwtIncompatible
    public final class ExecutionList
    extends Object
    A support class for ListenableFuture implementations to manage their listeners. An instance contains a list of listeners, each with an associated Executor, and guarantees that every Runnable that is added will be executed after execute() is called. Any Runnable added after the call to execute is still guaranteed to execute. There is no guarantee, however, that listeners will be executed in the order that they are added.

    Exceptions thrown by a listener will be propagated up to the executor. Any exception thrown during Executor.execute (e.g., a RejectedExecutionException or an exception thrown by direct execution) will be caught and logged.

      • add

        public void add​(Runnable runnable,
                        Executor executor)
        Adds the Runnable and accompanying Executor to the list of listeners to execute. If execution has already begun, the listener is executed immediately.

        When selecting an executor, note that directExecutor is dangerous in some cases. See the discussion in the ListenableFuture.addListener documentation.

      • execute

        public void execute()
        Runs this execution list, executing all existing pairs in the order they were added. However, note that listeners added after this point may be executed before those previously added, and note that the execution order of all listeners is ultimately chosen by the implementations of the supplied executors.

        This method is idempotent. Calling it several times in parallel is semantically equivalent to calling it exactly once.
