public final class ConfigurationScope extends org.eclipse.core.internal.preferences.AbstractScope
Configuration preferences are stored on a per configuration basis in the platform's configuration area. (The configuration area typically contains the list of plug-ins available for use, various settings (those shared across different instances of the same configuration) and any other such data needed by plug-ins.)
The path for preferences defined in the configuration scope hierarchy
is as follows:
This class is not intended to be subclassed. This class may be instantiated.

Return a path to a location in the file-system where clients are able to write files that will have the same sharing/scope properties as preferences defined in this scope.
Return the name of the scope that this context is associated with.
Return the preferences node that contains the preferences for the given qualifier or

public String getName()
public IEclipsePreferences getNode(String qualifier)
nullif the node cannot be determined. The given qualifier must not be
nullbut may be a path to a sub-node within the scope.
An example of a qualifier in Eclipse 2.1 would be the plug-in identifier that the preference is associated with (e.g. the "org.eclipse.core.resources" plug-in defines the "description.autobuild" preference).
This method can be used to determine the appropriate preferences node
to aid in setting key/value pairs. For instance:
returns the preference node in the instance scope where the preferences
for "org.eclipse.core.resources" are stored.
public IPath getLocation()
Implementors may return
null if the location is not known,
is unavailable, or is not applicable to this scope.
