Interface IHunk


  • public interface IHunk
    Interface that represents a hunk. A hunk is a portion of a patch. It identifies where the hunk is to be located in the target file. One use of this interface is a means to communicate to content merge viewers that one of the sides of a compare input is a patch hunk. Clients can determine which side it is by adapting the side to this interface (see IAdaptable.
    Since:
    3.3
    Restriction:
    This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients but can be obtained from an IFilePatchResult

      • getLabel

        String getLabel()
        Return a label that can be used to describe the hunk.
        Returns:
        a label that can be used to describe the hunk
      • getStartPosition

        int getStartPosition()
        Return the start position of the hunk in the target file.
        Returns:
        the start position of the hunk in the target file.
      • getUnifiedLines

        String[] getUnifiedLines()
        Returns hunk's content in the unified format. This is an internal format in which hunk stores its content and is always the same even if the hunk was extracted from a patch stored in a different format. In the unified format each line is prefixed with one of the following:
        • ' ' for context
        • '+' for addition
        • '-' for removal

      • getOriginalContents

        InputStream getOriginalContents()
        Return the original contents from which the hunk was generated. The returned contents usually only represent a portion of the file from which the hunk was generated.
        Returns:
        the original contents from which the hunk was generated
      • getPatchedContents

        InputStream getPatchedContents()
        Return the contents that contain the modifications for this hunk. The returned contents usually only represent a portion of the file that was modified.
        Returns:
        the contents that contain the modifications for this hunk
      • getCharset

        @Deprecated
        String getCharset()
                   throws CoreException
        Deprecated.
        This method can be called before the first attempt to apply the hunk when it is impossible to determine the encoding and in this case it always returns null. Please see IFilePatchResult.getCharset() as a proper way to obtain charset.
        Returns the name of a charset encoding to be used when decoding the contents of this hunk into characters. Returns null if a proper encoding cannot be determined.

        Note that this method does not check whether the result is a supported charset name. Callers should be prepared to handle UnsupportedEncodingException where this charset is used.

        Returns:
        the name of a charset, or null
        Throws:
        CoreException - if an error happens while determining the charset. See any refinements for more information.
