Interface ISafeRunnable

All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface ISafeRunnable

Safe runnables represent blocks of code and associated exception handlers. They are typically used when a plug-in needs to call some untrusted code (e.g., code contributed by another plug-in via an extension).

This interface can be used without OSGi running.

Clients may implement this interface.
