Method Detail

runNonUIThreadWithFakeContext

public static void runNonUIThreadWithFakeContext(
Display display,
                                                 
Runnable runnable)
Sometimes a background thread needs to access values that are stored in the session object that started the thread. In particular these values may be stored in session singletons. Accessing these singletons directly from the background thread would fail. This method fakes the missing request context and allows the runnable code to access those singletons.

Parameters:
display - The display that is bound to the session that contains the data to which the current thread should get access.
runnable - The runnable that contains the critical code that needs to have access to a request context.

SessionSingletonBase, org.eclipse.rwt.internal.service.ContextProvider

activate

public static void activate(
String id)
To allow automatic UI-updates by server side background threads activate the UICallBack mechanism. Call this method before the start of a thread and deactivate(java.lang.String) at the end. Each activation needs a session unique identifier as a kind of reference pointer to be able to decide when all background threads are finished.

Note: this method can only be called in the UI-Thread of a RWT application.

Parameters:
id - A session unique identifier to trace the activation and deactivation.
See Also:
Display.syncExec(java.lang.Runnable), Display.asyncExec(java.lang.Runnable), Display.getThread(), Display.wake()

deactivate

public static void deactivate(
String id)
To allow automatic UI-updates by server side background threads activate the UICallBack mechanism. Call deactivate(java.lang.String) method before the start of a thread and deactivateUICallBack at the end. Each activation needs a session unique identifier as a kind of reference pointer to be able to decide when all background threads are finished.

Note: this method can only be called in the UI-Thread of a RWT application.

Parameters:
id - A session unique identifier to trace the activation and deactivation.
See Also:
Display.syncExec(java.lang.Runnable), Display.asyncExec(java.lang.Runnable), Display.getThread(), Display.wake()
