Concrete methods

final def apply[T](body: => T)(implicit executor: ExecutionContext): Future[T]

Starts an asynchronous computation and returns a Future instance with the result of that computation.

Starts an asynchronous computation and returns a Future instance with the result of that computation.

The following expressions are equivalent:

val f1 = Future(expr)
val f2 = Future.unit.map(_ => expr)
val f3 = Future.unit.transform(_ => Success(expr))

The result becomes available once the asynchronous computation is completed.

Type parameters:
T

the type of the result

Value parameters:
body

the asynchronous computation

executor

the execution context on which the future is run

Returns:

the Future holding the result of the computation

Source:
Future.scala
final def delegate[T](body: => Future[T])(implicit executor: ExecutionContext): Future[T]

Starts an asynchronous computation and returns a Future instance with the result of that computation once it completes.

Starts an asynchronous computation and returns a Future instance with the result of that computation once it completes.

The following expressions are semantically equivalent:

val f1 = Future(expr).flatten
val f2 = Future.delegate(expr)
val f3 = Future.unit.flatMap(_ => expr)

The result becomes available once the resulting Future of the asynchronous computation is completed.

Type parameters:
T

the type of the result

Value parameters:
body

the asynchronous computation, returning a Future

executor

the execution context on which the body is evaluated in

Returns:

the Future holding the result of the computation

final def foldLeft[T, R](futures: Iterable[Future[T]])(zero: R)(op: (R, T) => R)(implicit executor: ExecutionContext): Future[R]

A non-blocking, asynchronous left fold over the specified futures, with the start value of the given zero.

A non-blocking, asynchronous left fold over the specified futures, with the start value of the given zero. The fold is performed asynchronously in left-to-right order as the futures become completed. The result will be the first failure of any of the futures, or any failure in the actual fold, or the result of the fold.

Example:

val futureSum = Future.foldLeft(futures)(0)(_ + _)

T

the type of the value of the input Futures

Value parameters:
futures

Returns:

the Future holding the result of the fold
