RxJava - Trampoline Scheduler

Schedulers.trampoline() method creates and returns a Scheduler that queues work on the current thread to be executed after the current work completes.

Schedulers.trampoline() Example

Create the following Java program using any editor of your choice in, say, C:\> RxJava.


import java.util.Random;

import io.reactivex.Observable;
import io.reactivex.schedulers.Schedulers;

public class ObservableTester  {
   public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {
      Observable.just("A", "AB", "ABC")
         .flatMap(v -> getLengthWithDelay(v)
         .doOnNext(s -> System.out.println("Processing Thread " 
            + Thread.currentThread().getName()))
         .subscribe(length -> System.out.println("Receiver Thread " 
            + Thread.currentThread().getName() 
            + ", Item length " + length));

   protected static Observable<Integer> getLengthWithDelay(String v) {
      Random random = new Random();
      try {
         Thread.sleep(random.nextInt(3) * 1000);
         return Observable.just(v.length());
      } catch (InterruptedException e) {
      return null;

Verify the Result

Compile the class using javac compiler as follows −

C:\RxJava>javac ObservableTester.java

Now run the ObservableTester as follows −

C:\RxJava>java ObservableTester

It should produce the following output −

Processing Thread main
Receiver Thread main, Item length 1
Processing Thread main
Receiver Thread main, Item length 2
Processing Thread main
Receiver Thread main, Item length 3
