package org.springframework.batch.poller;
Interface for polling a java.util.concurrent.Callable instance provided by the user. Use when you need to put something in the background (e.g. a remote invocation) and wait for the result, e.g.
 Poller<Result> poller = ...
 
 final long id = remoteService.execute(); // do something remotely
 
 Future<Result> future = poller.poll(new Callable<Result> {
     public Object call() {
         // Look for the result (null if not ready)
         return remoteService.get(id);
     }
 });
 
 Result result = future.get(1000L, TimeUnit.MILLSECONDS);
