Interface Scheduler

All Superinterfaces:
All Known Implementing Classes:

public sealed interface Scheduler extends Executor permits SchedulerManager (not exhaustive)
Represents a scheduler that will execute tasks with a precision based on its ticking rate. If precision is important, consider using a JDK executor service or any third party library.

Tasks are by default executed in the caller thread.

  • Method Details

    • newScheduler

      @NotNull static @NotNull Scheduler newScheduler()
    • process

      void process()
      Process scheduled tasks based on time to increase scheduling precision.

      This method is not thread-safe.

    • processTick

      void processTick()
      Advance 1 tick and call process().

      This method is not thread-safe.

    • processTickEnd

      void processTickEnd()
      Execute tasks set to run at the end of this tick.

      This method is not thread-safe.

    • submitTask

      @NotNull @NotNull Task submitTask(@NotNull @NotNull Supplier<TaskSchedule> task, @NotNull @NotNull ExecutionType executionType)
      Submits a new task with custom scheduling logic.

      This is the primitive method used by all scheduling shortcuts, task is immediately executed in the caller thread to retrieve its scheduling state and the task will stay alive as long as TaskSchedule.stop() is not returned (or Task.cancel() is called).

      task - the task to be directly executed in the caller thread
      executionType - the execution type
      the created task

    • execute

      default void execute(@NotNull @NotNull Runnable command)
      Implementation of Executor, proxies to scheduleNextTick(Runnable).
      Specified by:
      execute in interface Executor
      command - the task to execute on the next tick
