Interface TaskExecutor

    public interface TaskExecutor
    extends Executor
    Simple task executor interface that abstracts the execution of a Runnable.

    Implementations can use all sorts of different execution strategies, such as: synchronous, asynchronous, using a thread pool, and more.

    Equivalent to JDK 1.5's Executor interface; extending it now in Spring 3.0, so that clients may declare a dependency on an Executor and receive any TaskExecutor implementation. This interface remains separate from the standard Executor interface mainly for backwards compatibility with JDK 1.4 in Spring 2.x.

    Since:
    2.0

      • execute

        void execute(Runnable task)
        Execute the given task.

        The call might return immediately if the implementation uses an asynchronous execution strategy, or might block in the case of synchronous execution.

        Specified by:
        execute in interface  Executor
        Parameters:
        task - the Runnable to execute (never null)
        Throws:
        TaskRejectedException - if the given task was not accepted
