Interface ISourceContainerType

  • All Superinterfaces:
    ISourceContainerTypeDelegate

    public interface ISourceContainerType
    extends ISourceContainerTypeDelegate
    A source container type represents a kind of container of source code. For example, a source container type may be a project or a directory. A specific project or directory is represented by an instance of a source container type, which is called a source container (ISourceContainer).

    A source container type is contributed via the sourceContainerTypes extension point, providing a delegate to the work specific to the contributed type. Following is an example contribution.

     <extension point="org.eclipse.debug.core.sourceContainerTypes">
            <sourceContainerType
                    name="Project"
                    class="org.eclipse.debug.internal.core.sourcelookup.containers.ProjectSourceContainerType"
                    id="org.eclipse.debug.core.containerType.project"
                    description="A project in the workspace">
            </sourceContainerType>
     </extension>
