public interface TaskExecutor

Simple task executor interface that abstracts the execution of a Runnable.

Implementations can use all sorts of different execution strategies, such as: synchronous, asynchronous, using a thread pool, and more.

Equivalent to JDK 1.5's Executor interface. Separate mainly for compatibility with JDK 1.4. Implementations can simply implement the JDK 1.5 Executor interface as well, as it defines the exact same method signature.
