      • create

        IEclipsePreferences create​(IEclipsePreferences parent,
                                   String name)
        Create and return a new preference node with the given parent and name. Must not return null. Clients are able to create a new node in memory or load the node's contents from the backing store. Neither the parent or name arguments should be null.

        Implementors should note that the node might not have been added to the child list of the parent yet, and therefore might not be able to be referenced through navigation from the root node.

        Parameters:
        parent - the node's parent
        name - the name of the node
        Returns:
        the new node
