#1708 new enhancement

JOSM should not make me wait for up/downloading data but do it in background

Description (last modified by skyper)

Downloading or uploading data makes you sit in front of a progress bar with nothing useful to do. I'm not sure if this is avoidable for "normal data" because of collisions (i.e. uploading data, while editing it.), but it sounds safe to implement this for the GPS download dialog.
Only problem with "hiding" the dialog is that there's no place to display an error message if the download failed, and popping it up from nowhere doesn't seem too good either. Maybe displaying a note in the "map area" might work, at least it shouldn't take up any permanent place.

While experimenting around I found that GPS tracks can be easily downloaded in be background because map view works asynchronously anyway. I'm unsure about a good UI though and wonder if it's even wanted to implement parallel downloading because of the additional stress put on the servers…

This would also be great for importing images, which usually also takes quite a while. It should be easy to allow working in the main window while the progress popup is open, as it works with the relation-editing popup and the photo-viewing popup, too.

Nah, it's the image importing function that's really, really slow. Try the AgpIfoJ plugin, it's much faster :)

Replying to jttt:

No, tested with r5159.

What is about error messages ?

Yes, it’s possible to send GPS downloads into the background. I believe the condition for it is to have a map view open, so either download some OSM data first or create an empty plane. Still, the same thing could work for OSM data, if the merge is withheld if there are conflicts. The user would have to be notified somehow, though…
