Uses of Interface
java.util.concurrent.Callable

Packages that use Callable
java.util.concurrent Utility classes commonly useful in concurrent programming. 
javax.tools Provides interfaces for tools which can be invoked from a program, for example, compilers. 
 

Uses of Callable in java.util.concurrent
 

Methods in java.util.concurrent that return Callable
static Callable<Object> Executors.callable(PrivilegedAction<?> action)
          Returns a Callable object that, when called, runs the given privileged action and returns its result.
static Callable<Object> Executors.callable(PrivilegedExceptionAction<?> action)
          Returns a Callable object that, when called, runs the given privileged exception action and returns its result.
static Callable<Object> Executors.callable(Runnable task)
          Returns a Callable object that, when called, runs the given task and returns null.
static
<T> Callable<T>
Executors.callable(Runnable task, T result)
          Returns a Callable object that, when called, runs the given task and returns the given result.
static
<T> Callable<T>
Executors.privilegedCallable(Callable<T> callable)
          Returns a Callable object that will, when called, execute the given callable under the current access control context.
static
<T> Callable<T>
Executors.privilegedCallableUsingCurrentClassLoader(Callable<T> callable)
          Returns a Callable object that will, when called, execute the given callable under the current access control context, with the current context class loader as the context class loader.
 

Methods in java.util.concurrent with parameters of type Callable
protected
<V> RunnableScheduledFuture<V>
ScheduledThreadPoolExecutor.decorateTask(Callable<V> callable, RunnableScheduledFuture<V> task)
          Modifies or replaces the task used to execute a callable.
protected
<T> RunnableFuture<T>
AbstractExecutorService.newTaskFor(Callable<T> callable)
          Returns a RunnableFuture for the given callable task.
static
<T> Callable<T>
Executors.privilegedCallable(Callable<T> callable)
          Returns a Callable object that will, when called, execute the given callable under the current access control context.
static
<T> Callable<T>
Executors.privilegedCallableUsingCurrentClassLoader(Callable<T> callable)
          Returns a Callable object that will, when called, execute the given callable under the current access control context, with the current context class loader as the context class loader.
<V> ScheduledFuture<V>
ScheduledThreadPoolExecutor.schedule(Callable<V> callable, long delay, TimeUnit unit)
           
<V> ScheduledFuture<V>
ScheduledExecutorService.schedule(Callable<V> callable, long delay, TimeUnit unit)
          Creates and executes a ScheduledFuture that becomes enabled after the given delay.
<T> Future<T>
ScheduledThreadPoolExecutor.submit(Callable<T> task)
           
<T> Future<T>
ExecutorService.submit(Callable<T> task)
          Submits a value-returning task for execution and returns a Future representing the pending results of the task.
<T> Future<T>
AbstractExecutorService.submit(Callable<T> task)
           
 Future<V> ExecutorCompletionService.submit(Callable<V> task)
           
 Future<V> CompletionService.submit(Callable<V> task)
          Submits a value-returning task for execution and returns a Future representing the pending results of the task.
 

Method parameters in java.util.concurrent with type arguments of type Callable
<T> List<Future<T>>
ExecutorService.invokeAll(Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks)
          Executes the given tasks, returning a list of Futures holding their status and results when all complete.
<T> List<Future<T>>
AbstractExecutorService.invokeAll(Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks)
           
<T> List<Future<T>>
ExecutorService.invokeAll(Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks, long timeout, TimeUnit unit)
          Executes the given tasks, returning a list of Futures holding their status and results when all complete or the timeout expires, whichever happens first.
<T> List<Future<T>>
AbstractExecutorService.invokeAll(Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks, long timeout, TimeUnit unit)
           
<T> T
ExecutorService.invokeAny(Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks)
          Executes the given tasks, returning the result of one that has completed successfully (i.e., without throwing an exception), if any do.
<T> T
AbstractExecutorService.invokeAny(Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks)
           
<T> T
ExecutorService.invokeAny(Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks, long timeout, TimeUnit unit)
          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.
<T> T
AbstractExecutorService.invokeAny(Collection<? extends Callable<T>> tasks, long timeout, TimeUnit unit)
           
 

Constructors in java.util.concurrent with parameters of type Callable
FutureTask(Callable<V> callable)
          Creates a FutureTask that will upon running, execute the given Callable.
 

Uses of Callable in javax.tools
 

Subinterfaces of Callable in javax.tools
static interface JavaCompiler.CompilationTask
          Interface representing a future for a compilation task.
