Class TimedCallable

  extended by EDU.oswego.cs.dl.util.concurrent.ThreadFactoryUser
      extended by EDU.oswego.cs.dl.util.concurrent.TimedCallable
All Implemented Interfaces:

public class TimedCallable
extends ThreadFactoryUser
implements Callable

TimedCallable runs a Callable function for a given length of time. The function is run in its own thread. If the function completes in time, its result is returned; otherwise the thread is interrupted and an InterruptedException is thrown.

Note: TimedCallable will always return within the given time limit (modulo timer inaccuracies), but whether or not the worker thread stops in a timely fashion depends on the interrupt handling in the Callable function's implementation.
