Eclipse Progress Monitors - the old and the new storyFor a long time, there was an solid article about how to use progress monitors which was what you got when you googled for info about the topic. Now, the old article is replace by a new version.

Happy coding - keep up the progress - maybe there's someone monitoring it...
