V - the result type of method call

Executors.PrivilegedActionAdapter, Executors.PrivilegedCallable, Executors.PrivilegedCallableUsingCurrentClassLoader, Executors.PrivilegedExceptionActionAdapter, Executors.RunnableAdapter

public interface Callable<V>

A task that returns a result and may throw an exception. Implementors define a single method with no arguments called call.

The Callable interface is similar to Runnable, in that both are designed for classes whose instances are potentially executed by another thread. A Runnable, however, does not return a result and cannot throw a checked exception.

The Executors class contains utility methods to convert from other common forms to Callable classes.
