// Task ------------------------------------------------------------------------
//
// A task is a generic runnable thingy, usually used for running code on a
// different thread or for scheduling future tasks off of the message loop.

class Task : public tracked_objects::Tracked {
 public:
  Task() {}
  virtual  B2G_ACL_EXPORT ~Task() {}

  // Tasks are automatically deleted after Run is called.
  virtual void Run() = 0;
};

class CancelableTask : public Task {
 public:
  // Not all tasks support cancellation.
  virtual void Cancel() = 0;
};

// Scoped Factories ------------------------------------------------------------
//
// These scoped factory objects can be used by non-refcounted objects to safely
// place tasks in a message loop.  Each factory guarantees that the tasks it
// produces will not run after the factory is destroyed.  Commonly, factories
// are declared as class members, so the class' tasks will automatically cancel
// when the class instance is destroyed.
//
// Exampe Usage:
//
// class MyClass {
//  private:
//   // This factory will be used to schedule invocations of SomeMethod.
//   ScopedRunnableMethodFactory<MyClass> some_method_factory_;
//
//  public:
//   // It is safe to suppress warning 4355 here.
//   MyClass() : some_method_factory_(this) { }
//
//   void SomeMethod() {
//     // If this function might be called directly, you might want to revoke
//     // any outstanding runnable methods scheduled to call it.  If it's not
//     // referenced other than by the factory, this is unnecessary.
//     some_method_factory_.RevokeAll();
//     ...
//   }
//
//   void ScheduleSomeMethod() {
//     // If you'd like to only only have one pending task at a time, test for
//     // |empty| before manufacturing another task.
//     if (!some_method_factory_.empty())
//       return;
//
//     // The factories are not thread safe, so always invoke on
//     // |MessageLoop::current()|.
//     MessageLoop::current()->PostDelayedTask(FROM_HERE,
//         some_method_factory_.NewRunnableMethod(&MyClass::SomeMethod),
//         kSomeMethodDelayMS);
//   }
// };

// A ScopedTaskFactory produces tasks of type |TaskType| and prevents them from
// running after it is destroyed.

// This traits-class is used by RunnableMethod to manage the lifetime of the

// struct could be defined with empty RetainCallee and ReleaseCallee methods.

// of why this is reasonable.

// RunnableMethod and RunnableFunction -----------------------------------------
//
// Runnable methods are a type of task that call a function on an object when
// they are run. We implement both an object and a set of NewRunnableMethod and
// NewRunnableFunction functions for convenience. These functions are
// overloaded and will infer the template types, simplifying calling code.
//
// The template definitions all use the following names:
// T                - the class type of the object you're supplying
//                    this is not needed for the Static version of the call
// Method/Function  - the signature of a pointer to the method or function you
//                    want to call
// Param            - the parameter(s) to the method, possibly packed as a Tuple
// A                - the first parameter (if any) to the method
// B                - the second parameter (if any) to the mathod
//
// Put these all together and you get an object that can call a method whose
// signature is:
//   R T::MyFunction([A[, B]])
//
// Usage:
// PostTask(FROM_HERE, NewRunnableMethod(object, &Object::method[, a[, b]])
// PostTask(FROM_HERE, NewRunnableFunction(&function[, a[, b]])

// Callback --------------------------------------------------------------------
//
// A Callback is like a Task but with unbound parameters. It is basically an
// object-oriented function pointer.
//
// Callbacks are designed to work with Tuples.  A set of helper functions and
// classes is provided to hide the Tuple details from the consumer.  Client
// code will generally work with the CallbackRunner base class, which merely
// provides a Run method and is returned by the New* functions. This allows
// users to not care which type of class implements the callback, only that it
// has a certain number and type of arguments.
//
// The implementation of this is done by CallbackImpl, which inherits
// CallbackStorage to store the data. This allows the storage of the data
// (requiring the class type T) to be hidden from users, who will want to call
// this regardless of the implementor's type T.
//
// Note that callbacks currently have no facility for cancelling or abandoning
// them. We currently handle this at a higher level for cases where this is
// necessary. The pointer in a callback must remain valid until the callback
// is made.
//

//       NewCallback(obj, &Object::DoStuff);
