Class Overview

Provides default implementations of ExecutorService execution methods. This class implements the submit, invokeAny and invokeAll methods using a RunnableFuture returned by newTaskFor, which defaults to the FutureTask class provided in this package. For example, the implementation of submit(Runnable) creates an associated RunnableFuture that is executed and returned. Subclasses may override the newTaskFor methods to return RunnableFuture implementations other than FutureTask.

Extension example. Here is a sketch of a class that customizes ThreadPoolExecutor to use a CustomTask class instead of the default FutureTask:

 public class CustomThreadPoolExecutor extends ThreadPoolExecutor {

   static class CustomTask
     
           
           
           
           
    
    
     
     
            
            
            
            
       implements RunnableFuture

Public Constructors

public AbstractExecutorService ()

Since: API Level 1

Public Methods

public List<Future<T>> invokeAll (Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks)

Since: API Level 9

Executes the given tasks, returning a list of Futures holding their status and results when all complete. isDone() is true for each element of the returned list. Note that a completed task could have terminated either normally or by throwing an exception. The results of this method are undefined if the given collection is modified while this operation is in progress.

Parameters
tasks the collection of tasks
Returns
  • A list of Futures representing the tasks, in the same sequential order as produced by the iterator for the given task list, each of which has completed.

public List<Future<T>> invokeAll (Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks, long timeout, TimeUnit unit)

Since: API Level 9

Executes the given tasks, returning a list of Futures holding their status and results when all complete or the timeout expires, whichever happens first. isDone() is true for each element of the returned list. Upon return, tasks that have not completed are cancelled. Note that a completed task could have terminated either normally or by throwing an exception. The results of this method are undefined if the given collection is modified while this operation is in progress.

Parameters
tasks the collection of tasks
timeout the maximum time to wait
unit the time unit of the timeout argument
Returns
  • a list of Futures representing the tasks, in the same sequential order as produced by the iterator for the given task list. If the operation did not time out, each task will have completed. If it did time out, some of these tasks will not have completed.

public T invokeAny (Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks, long timeout, TimeUnit unit)

Since: API Level 9

Executes the given tasks, returning the result of one that has completed successfully (i.e., without throwing an exception), if any do before the given timeout elapses. Upon normal or exceptional return, tasks that have not completed are cancelled. The results of this method are undefined if the given collection is modified while this operation is in progress.

Parameters
tasks the collection of tasks
timeout the maximum time to wait
unit the time unit of the timeout argument
Returns
  • the result returned by one of the tasks.

public T invokeAny (Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks)

Since: API Level 9

Executes the given tasks, returning the result of one that has completed successfully (i.e., without throwing an exception), if any do. Upon normal or exceptional return, tasks that have not completed are cancelled. The results of this method are undefined if the given collection is modified while this operation is in progress.

Parameters
tasks the collection of tasks
Returns
  • the result returned by one of the tasks

public Future<T> submit (Runnable task, T result)

Since: API Level 1

Submits a Runnable task for execution and returns a Future representing that task. The Future's get method will return the given result upon successful completion.

Parameters
task the task to submit
result the result to return
Returns
  • a Future representing pending completion of the task

public Future<T> submit (Callable<T> task)

Since: API Level 1

Submits a value-returning task for execution and returns a Future representing the pending results of the task. The Future's get method will return the task's result upon successful completion.

If you would like to immediately block waiting for a task, you can use constructions of the form result = exec.submit(aCallable).get();

Note: The Executors class includes a set of methods that can convert some other common closure-like objects, for example, PrivilegedAction to Callable form so they can be submitted.

Parameters
task the task to submit
Returns
  • a Future representing pending completion of the task

public Future<?> submit (Runnable task)

Since: API Level 1

Submits a Runnable task for execution and returns a Future representing that task. The Future's get method will return null upon successful completion.

Parameters
task the task to submit
Returns
  • a Future representing pending completion of the task

Protected Methods

protected RunnableFuture<T> newTaskFor (Callable<T> callable)

Since: API Level 9

Returns a RunnableFuture for the given callable task.

Parameters
callable the callable task being wrapped
Returns
  • a RunnableFuture which when run will call the underlying callable and which, as a Future, will yield the callable's result as its result and provide for cancellation of the underlying task.

protected RunnableFuture<T> newTaskFor (Runnable runnable, T value)

Since: API Level 9

Returns a RunnableFuture for the given runnable and default value.

Parameters
runnable the runnable task being wrapped
value the default value for the returned future
Returns
  • a RunnableFuture which when run will run the underlying runnable and which, as a Future, will yield the given value as its result and provide for cancellation of the underlying task.
