Class SyncTaskExecutor

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.springframework.core.task.SyncTaskExecutor
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Executor, TaskExecutor

public class SyncTaskExecutor
extends Object
implements TaskExecutor, Serializable

TaskExecutor implementation that executes each task synchronously in the calling thread.

Mainly intended for testing scenarios.

Execution in the calling thread does have the advantage of participating in it's thread context, for example the thread context class loader or the thread's current transaction association. That said, in many cases, asynchronous execution will be preferable: choose an asynchronous TaskExecutor instead for such scenarios.
