    Deprecated.
    This interface is not implemented within PDE and is scheduled for deletion: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=541068
    Classes that implement this interface are responsible for holding a table of models associated with the underlying objects. They have several responsibilities:
    • To hold model objects in one place
    • To allow requesters to connect to the models or to disconnect from them.
    • To notify interested parties when models are added and removed.
    Model providers are responsible for listening to the workspace, updating models whose underlying resources have been updated, and removing them from the table when those resources have been deleted.
