Interface IFetchFactory


  • public interface IFetchFactory
    Interface to be implemented by clients of the org.eclipse.pde.build.fetchFactories extension-point.

    The factories are being used at various points in the execution of the PDE Build eclipse.fetch Ant task. Based on a map file entry, they are responsible for generating segments of an ant script whose execution will fetch plug-ins, fragments, bundles and features or individual files contained in one of those elements. The format of a map file entry is: <elementType>@<elementName> = <repositoryTag>, <repositoryDetails> The format of elementType and elementName is fixed. The factories specify the value of repositoryTag and the format of the repositoryDetails. repositoryTag and repositoryDetails becomes defacto APIs.
    repositoryTag should match the factory id used when declaring the factory extension. For example, for the CVS the value is "CVS". repositoryDetails should contains enough details to allow the factory to generate a fetch script retrieving the element.

    The fetch factories are being contributed through the org.eclipse.pde.build.fetchFactories extension-points.

    Fetch factories will not be re-used between different PDE Build eclipse.fetch Ant tasks. Each task will create at most one fetch factory instance for the duration of the task processing. This allows implementors to build and maintain stateful information. Such information must be released in addTargets(IAntScript) call.

      • parseMapFileEntry

        void parseMapFileEntry​(String rawEntry,
                               Properties overrideTags,
                               Map<String,​Object> entryInfos)
                        throws CoreException
        This method should parse / validate a mapfile entry and derive a corresponding key / value pair structure containing the relevant information.

        The arguments specified in the map file are provided. The map with entry infos should be filled with provider specific information that is required in later processing to sucessfully generate the fetch script.

        Since 3.6, factories may optionally set the Constants.KEY_SOURCE_REFERENCES property in the entry infos map to support the inclusion of source references in the bundle manifest using the Eclipse-SourceReferences header.

        Parameters:
        rawEntry - the arguments as specified in the map file (may not be null).
        overrideTags - a key / value containing all the override tags specified for all the repository (maybe null or empty). The values of this map of this are read from the fetchTag property (see file scripts/templates/headless-build/build.properties).
        entryInfos - the map to store repository specific information derived from the rawEntry.This object is being passed as arguments to the other methods of the factory. The factories are also expected to set KEY_ELEMENT_TAG to indicate the tag that will be used to fetch the element. This value is for example used to generate the "qualifier" value of a version number. Note that KEY_ELEMENT_NAME and KEY_ELEMENT_TYPE are reserved entries whose values respectively refer to the name of the element being fetched and its type.
        Throws:
        CoreException - if the rawEntry is incorrect.
      • generateRetrieveElementCall

        void generateRetrieveElementCall​(Map<String,​Object> entryInfos,
                                         IPath destination,
                                         IAntScript script)
        Generates a segment of ant script whose execution will fetch the element (bundle, plug-in, fragment, feature) indicated in the entryInfos arguments.

        Parameters:
        entryInfos - the map that has been built in the parseMapFileEntry(String, Properties, Map) method. This map contains the name and the type of the element (resp. KEY_ELEMENT_NAME and KEY_ELEMENT_TYPE) to put in the destination.
        destination - the destination where the element should be fetched to. For example, for a plug-in the plugin.xml file is expected to be in destination/plugin.xml.
        script - the script in which to generate the segments of ant script. It is not authorized to generate target declaration during this call.
      • generateRetrieveFilesCall

        void generateRetrieveFilesCall​(Map<String,​Object> entryInfos,
                                       IPath destination,
                                       String[] files,
                                       IAntScript script)
        Generates a segment of ant script whose execution will fetch the specified file from the given element.

        Parameters:
        entryInfos - the map that has been built in the parseMapFileEntry(String, Properties, Map) method. This map contains the name and the type of the element (resp. KEY_ELEMENT_NAME and KEY_ELEMENT_TYPE) to put in the destination.
        destination - the destination where the element should be fetched to. For example, for a plug-in the plugin.xml file is expected to be in destination/plugin.xml.
        files - the files to obtained for the specified element.
        script - the script in which to generate the segments of ant script. It is not authorized to generate target declaration during this call.
