Description SirIntellegence 2014-10-02 20:08:25 UTC
When a swing worker is done, you can catch ExecutionException and some others to do custom logic like:
    // show message "file saved"
catch (ExecutionException ee){
    //show message "save failed"
catch (InterruptedException | CancellationException e){
As far as I know, you cannot do this with ProgressUtils unless you get a Future<T> from showProgressDialogAndRunLater, which I may not want.  It is possible to work around this issue by wrapping the contents of the running code in a try/catch everything block, placing the throwable in some variable, and then handling it after.

i am afraid that would be an incompatible change, though i understand your request and that in this case the API is not very friendly.
Comment 2 SirIntellegence 2015-03-04 17:32:40 UTC
You could have the default implementation just wrap the original with the annotations on it without throwing anything.
Comment 3 SirIntellegence 2015-03-04 17:34:22 UTC
public abstract Foo bar(Baz bazen);

public Foo newBar(Baz bazen) throws ExecutionException, CancellationException{
    return bar(bazen);
