Document Creation

This extension point is deprecated

Identifier:
org.eclipse.core.filebuffers.documentCreation

Since:
3.0

Description:
This extension point is used to customize the document creation behavior of this plug-in's default text file buffer manager. It allows to specify which document factory should be used in order to create the document instance of a text file buffer created for a certain file content type, file extension, or file name.

This extension must no longer be used. We urge existing clients to remove their contribution:

The specification of a document factory. In order to find a factory for a given file the attributes of each factory specification are consulted in the following sequence: contentTypeId, fileNames, extensions. If multiple, equally specific factory specifications are found for a given file it is not specified which factory is used.



Examples:

<extension
     id="org.eclipse.jdt.debug.ui.SnippetDocumentFactory"
     name="%snippetDocumentFactory.name"
     point="org.eclipse.core.filebuffers.documentCreation">
  <factory
        extensions="jpage"
        class="org.eclipse.jdt.internal.debug.ui.snippeteditor.SnippetDocumentFactory">
  </factory>
</extension>
