public interface Executor
The general intent is that execution be asynchronous,
or at least independent of the caller. For example,
one of the simplest implementations of
(as performed in ThreadedExecutor)
However, this interface allows implementations that instead
employ queueing or pooling, or perform additional
void execute(Runnable command) throws InterruptedException
The method is defined not to throw any checked exceptions during execution of the command. Generally, any problems encountered will be asynchronous and so must be dealt with via callbacks or error handler objects. If necessary, any context-dependent catastrophic errors encountered during actions that arrange for execution could be accompanied by throwing context-dependent unchecked exceptions.
However, the method does throw InterruptedException: It will fail to arrange for execution if the current thread is currently interrupted. Further, the general contract of the method is to avoid, suppress, or abort execution if interruption is detected in any controllable context surrounding execution.
