QFuture concept is already very similar to GCD.
I think this can be done using QFutureWatcher. Connect to it's finished() signal:
There's also some sample code on the help page.

yes, but its limited to signals like finished, no custom signals possible i guess...
not really what i need i think...
I start something in a background thread (kind of a daemon). from this thread i need to execute something in main

I also posted a github sample on using QTConcurrent to run tasks in a separate thread, It's nothing advanced but will get your toes wet

You can keep running around the issue but at some point you are going to have to bite the bullet.
You need thread signalling and data passing, so use QThread with QMutex and QT signals & slots it does what you want and isn't that hard to implement.
If you want to wait for something exactly like GCD to be included in BB10 then you are welcome to do that too but you may be waiting a long time.
