Interface IDynamicExtensionRegistry


  • public interface IDynamicExtensionRegistry
    This interface provides an extra degree of access to an extension registry that might be useful to registry implementers.

    At this time functionality available through this interface is not intended to be used with the default Eclipse extension registry.

    Note: This class/interface is part of an interim SPI that is still under development and expected to change significantly before reaching stability. It is being made available at this early stage to solicit feedback from pioneering adopters on the understanding that any code that uses this SPI will almost certainly be broken (repeatedly) as the SPI evolves.

    This interface is not intended to be extended by clients.

    This interface should not be implemented by clients.

    This interface can be used without OSGi running.

    Since:
    3.4
    Restriction:
    This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.

    This interface is not intended to be extended by clients.
