Job Module

The Job Module provides the API allowing two ways communication with a task executed in a background thread. A job offers progress information, a live log and a Java bean based question and answer system but it can be extended. The source code is available on GitHub.

Existing jobs can be accessed via the JobManager interface as follows:

Request jobRequest = new DefaultRequest();




jobRequest.setProperty("job type parameter", "value");

// Starts a new job with the provided "jobtype" identifier and waits until its finished.
jobManager.executeJob("jobtype", request)

// Adds the new job in the queue of jobs to execute.
jobManager.addJob("jobtype", request)

  • public void setVerbose(boolean verbose) - indicates whether the job should log the progress information. The default value is true.
