ThreadManager

public abstract class ThreadManager extends Object

An interface that controls the thread pools and thread factories used by the Admin SDK. Each instance of FirebaseApp uses an implementation of this interface to create and manage threads.

Multiple app instances may use the same ThreadManager instance. Methods in this interface may get invoked multiple times by the same app, during its lifetime. Apps may also invoke methods of this interface concurrently and so implementations should provide any synchronization necessary.

Protected Methods

protected abstract ExecutorService getExecutor (FirebaseApp app)

Returns the main thread pool for an app. Implementations may return the same instance of ExecutorService for multiple apps. The returned thread pool is used for short-lived tasks by all components of an app.

For long-lived tasks (such as the ones started by the Realtime Database client), the SDK creates dedicated executors using the ThreadFactory returned by the getThreadFactory() method.

Parameters
app A FirebaseApp instance.
Returns
  • A non-null ExecutorService instance.

protected abstract ThreadFactory getThreadFactory ()

Returns the ThreadFactory to be used for creating long-lived threads. This is used mainly to create the long-lived worker threads for the Realtime Database client, and other scheduled (periodic) tasks started by the SDK. The SDK guarantees clean termination of all threads started via this ThreadFactory, when the user calls delete().

If long-lived threads cannot be supported in the current runtime, this method may throw a RuntimeException.

Returns
  • A non-null ThreadFactory.

protected abstract void releaseExecutor (FirebaseApp app, ExecutorService executor)

Cleans up the thread pool associated with an app. This method is invoked when an app is deleted. This is guaranteed to be called with the ExecutorService previously returned by getExecutor(FirebaseApp) for the corresponding app.

Parameters
app A FirebaseApp instance.
