[concurrency-interest] New method for BlockingQueue
Fri, 29 Oct 2004 00:08:48 -0400
I would like to use a method in BlockingQueue that blocks on the queue
up until a timeout occurs or until an element appears on the queue,
returning all elements waiting on the queue at that time.
It's a little bit like a mix of methods poll(long timeout, TimeUnit
unit) and drainTo(Collection c), thus something like drainTo(Collection
c, long timeout, TimeUnit unit).
I don't think that there is a way to implements efficiently this method
by wrapping a BlockingQueue. Am-I wrong?
Is it possible that this method could be added in a future release?
