This article looks at the new Jobs API available as part of
Eclipse 3.0. It describes the main portions of the Jobs API and
the use of scheduling rules. It also describes some changes to
Eclipse resource management including how the Resources plug-in
integrates with the new API. Finally, it describes some new UI
functionality that has been added to provide feedback to users
about jobs that are run in the background.
